Description - The residence at 2401 10th Avenue is a single-story wood frame dwelling which measures 32' N-S (across) by 22' E-W (deep). It is supported by a low painted white concrete foundation, and its exterior walls are clad with painted white horizontal wood siding, with painted brown vertical wood siding in the upper gable ends. The house is covered by a moderately-pitched side-gabled roof, with brown asphalt shingles, and with minimally-overhanging boxed eaves. There is no chimney. A fixed-pane octagon window penetrates the façade wall (east elevation) to the south of the entry door. Elsewhere, the home's windows are entirely single and paired 2/2 double-hung sash with painted white wood frames and surrounds. Windows on the face also feature painted light brown wood shutters, while windows on the west (rear) elevation have metal awnings. A painted light brown wood-paneled front door, with nine upper sash lights, and covered by a white synthetic storm door, leads into the house from a 2-step, 5' by 3', concrete porch on the façade. The porch is covered by a gabled roof supported by black wrought iron posts. A painted white wood-paneled door, with one upper sash light, and covered by a white synthetic storm door, is located at the east end of the south elevation. This door leads into the house from a 2-step, 4' by 4' concrete porch.

Historical Background - Weld County Assessor records indicate that this house was built in 1949, while Greeley city directories indicate that it was initially owned by the Robert E. and Betty R. (Grover) Maricle family through the late 1960s. Robert Maricle was born at Des Moines, Iowa on May 23, 1921, the son of Seth and Lessie Mae (Beaton) Maricle. He grew up in Carroll, Nebraska, and in Greeley, graduating from Greeley High School with the class of 1938. Robert served in the U.S. Army during World War II from 1942 to 1945, and following the war's end, he was married to Betty R. Grover in Greeley on February 1, 1946. Robert worked as parts manager to for McArthur Olds-Cadillac for twenty years, and was also employed Big A Auto Parts prior to his retirement in 1985. Mr. and Mrs. Maricle reared a family of one daughter and two sons, named Sherry (Neb), Gordon and Daniel. Betty Maricle passed away on June 11, 1986; Robert Maricle died on August 31, 1987 at the age of 76. Following the Miracle family, subsequent owner/occupants of this house included H.W. Law (early 1960s), and H.L. Ellis (mid-to-late 1960s). Greeley city directories indicate the property then became a rental from the late 1960s through the early 1990s. The house has been owned and occupied by Bruce E. Hahn from October 1995 to the present (2006).
