The Cottrell-Smith House – The Frank & Dezzie Tuft House
12390 S 800 East in Draper, Utah – Built in 1905
The Cottrell-Smith House, constructed 1905, is a brick and clapboard building on a raised granite and concrete foundation. It is constructed in the Victorian Eclectic style quite common for this period. The house has seen extensive modification over the past approximately 10 years. The clapboard pantry at the rear (east) facade is a recent addition from the c.1980s. The front porch originally was limited to the front facade and an old photograph shows that it had classical-style columns. This was extended around the south facade of the house, probably in the mid 1980s, and the classical-style columns were replaced with Victorian-style columns. A large deck with a gazebo was added onto the rear of the house probably at this same time. During this period the interior was also altered, with rooms being added to the upper floor and a gabled dormer added to the north side of the roof.
