National Register of Historic Places in Monterey County
Weeks designed the house for a local farmer and civic leader whose requirements for function and economy superceded his concern for fashion. The building is late Victorian rather than early modern, as in the case of Weeks' Sargent House a few blocks from here.
The Black house is essentially Queen Anne in style. This is probably why Weeks, who was fond of representing his popular Modified Colonial style in the media, chose to define the Black project as a cottage.
