The Henry P. Fennern House is located in the west end of Davenport, Iowa, United States. This house dates from 1902 and was built by Henry P. Fennern, who had worked as a shipper for a local wholesale grocer, the J.F. Kelly Company. While the siding is not original the decorative detail in the front gable is original to the house.[2] It features three types of shingles and a small widow set in curved reveals. This detail suggests Shingle style architecture. Another detail of the house, now missing, is the recessed, corner entrance with a spindle screen above.[2] The residence has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1984.[1]
