This is one of a cluster of three row houses built by E. Pitcher for Eugene Bettes in 1888. No. 22 is a two story brick row house with a door on its right side that opens onto a courtyard it shares with No. 21. It has simple brick arches over the windows, but a more elaborate bracketed cornice along the front of the house.

The narrow transom and grille work on the doors and windows give the simple row character. (D. Vogt, Dec. 2022)
The use of two different paint colors help to visually separate the co-joined rows. (D. Vogt, Dec. 2022)
