This duplex, which was built in 1916, is basically vernacular. The styling is unusual for the area of Salt Lake.

Samuel George Spencer, who owned the homes in front of this duplex, built
this home in 1916 for his sons who were married. Alma and David, sons of Jane Marie Baker, lived in this duplex.

Alma Spencer was born in Pleasant Grove, Utah. He worked for the Sweet
Candy Company for thirty-five years.

David B. Spencer was also born in Pleasant Grove.

The style is basically vernacular. There are segmentally arched windows. On the porch there are two square columns with railing. The house is a horizontal “rowhouse” and has a flat roof. The style is somewhat rare in the area.
