The homes in this neighborhood were all built in the 1950's and are almost all faced with red or yellow brick. A few here and there are faced with native sandstone of which this is an example. As I recall from a summer long ago when I worked for a brick mason, laying these irregular stones required a great deal of skill and experience. Notice that the stones are of many different sizes and shapes but the mortar between them is very regular and the outer face is smooth. No job for an amateur.
