7. Trask House, 1887

Edwin Trask, a jeweler who came to Aurora in 1858, had this Queen Anne home constructed in 1887. Some of the elaborate architectural details include king's posts and fish-scale shingles in the gable ends, scroll brackets and exposed rafters underneath the eaves, and a front 2-story bay window with iron cresting. The house was built by local contractor Ferris Minium, and painted by JD Rice.
