Specific
property
affected:
Four Sexton Cottages
Comments: The three cottages in Holt, Lafayette No. 1 Cemetery,Lafayette No. 2 Cemetery, are contributing elements to the cemeteries and the surrounding neighborhood.

I find that each cottage retains the integrity of location, setting, feeling or association, materials, integrity of design or workmanship. Each cottage embodies a distinctive characteristics of a type or period. These structures possess those qualities of significance as identified by the National Register Criteria for Evaluation.

The cottages should be repaired to maintain the historic feel and character of the cemeteries. Demolition and replacement with a new structire would negatively affect the surrounding historic neighborhood.
