Ed Block resdence, Prescott, Arizona. Built on Union Street and moved to Cortez Street.

The Ed Block residence was originally distingtuished by its many porches (on both the first and second stories), its carefully articulated details and its site overlooking the city. the porches have been filled in on the upper level and rebuilt with masonry columns on the lower levels: details are missing: even the site has changed. There are, however, many original features still intact. These include hipped roof, horizontal wood siding, stained glass windows and eave brackets. Massing is slightly asymmetrical and the floor plan is roughly rectangular.
In scale and detailing the Ed Block residence was one of the most impressive structures in Prescott at the turn of the century. It was bult in 1899 by Ed Block, operator of a haberdashery on Whiskey Row, on Union Street across from the Jake Marks residence. In 1939 the building was moved to its present location at 239 S. Cortez and converted to apartments. In spite of extensive remodeling and modernization, the building has retained much of its original character and is complement to the other older homes in the area.
