1908 Washington Avenue

Washington Ave., Westheight Manor

Residence for Mrs. Lena Helzberg
1908 Washington Avenue
Victor J. DeFoe, Architect
Built 1921

Originally addressed as 1303 North 20th Street. One of his more modest designs, this compact home nevertheless features DeFoe's sensitivity in the handling of fenestration, main entry, and surface detail. Although built by Gilbert A. Helzberg for his mother, the first verifiable resident was George F. Reinhardt, with Swift and Company.
