5. 1544 A Ave NE (DeVolson Weaver and Nancy Weaver)

Weaver was Grant Wood’s grandfather and the source of Wood’s middle name, DeVolson. This was likely where Wood’s family lived after moving from Anamosa in 1901 and before moving into their house at 318 14th Street NE in 1902 (See #1). In 1900, this was the only residence standing on this side of the block.
