Following a depression that struck the nation in the 1890s, rowhouses like the Moyer became a popular building type for those looking to invest money in real estate. A local small-time investor constructed the Moyer Rowhouses in 1904 in an area west of downtown that was close to streetcar lines and retail establishments. The brick rowhouses are two distinct buildings with identical massing designed in the Renaissance Revival style. Initially, both rowhouses contained two units, each with an individual porch-covered entranceway. Later alterations resulted in the removal of the porches from one of the buildings as well as the division of the interiors to allow for additional units.
