This small bungalow with a somewhat unusual hipped roof was built for John and Della Clemons in 1919. Originally from Germany, John Clemons had a business in the Capitol Theater Annex called “John the Tailor.” The home is on the local register and in the South Capitol National Historic Neighborhood.
