Briggs Terrace/Evergreen Lane, 1204 H Ave
The Evergreen Lane home was built in 1879, and has passed in ownership from its builder, Otis Briggs, Sr., through generations of the Briggs and Dutton Families to the Nevada Community Historical Society in 1996. First called "Briggs Terrace," it is also known by the name "Evergreen Lane." Other interesting architecture on the property includes a carriage house and pig barn. The bricks for these buildings were made by hand, onsite. If you look closely you will find fingerprints forever stamped in some bricks. The workers stayed on site in a workmen's shed, which still stands today. Workmen’s sheds were usually torn down after work was done and there are few left around the country. This workmen’s shed was kept for future use. Evergreen Lane is considered an outstanding landmark of the Nevada community. Restoration began in 1997 and will continue when funds are available.
