The Yaryan House:

 

It is almost a shock to see this circa 1927 Spanish Eclectic house at 534 East Front Street among block after block of Front Street Victorian-era architecture. Indeed, it is somewhat rare to see such a building anywhere outside of Florida and our southwestern states.

From about 1915 until 1940 this style became popular in America.

534 East Front Street

It normally features details contained in this house: cross-gabled red tile roof, one or more prominent arches in the door area, the wall surface of stucco, asymmetrical facade, decorated chimney tops, and wrought iron window grilles. 

This house, which also has large double-doors with iron ornamentation, was built by Homer L. Yaryan who came here in the 1920s and for a time owned Yaryan Motor Company, a Ford Motor Company automobile agency. He was later a coal dealer.
