The Victorian Italianate style was one of the most popular styles of the "high Victorian" period, from 1870 through the 1880's. The overhanging eaves with carved, curving corbels and square tower classify this house as Italianate. Inside, the beautiful oak woodwork in the foyer and parlors is ornamented with unique garland and bow accents. Fretwork adds a touch of elegance to several doorways.
This house was totally restored by 1990, The TV and music rooms have been remodled and the first floor bathroom under the stairs has been added. Carpeting was removed in several first floor rooms to reveal a beautiful feathered oak floor. A unique feature in the foyer is the paneled inserts made of different varieties of wood indigenous to the Miami Valley.
Irregular shapes and massing of Queen Anne style combined with neoclassical porch columns.Wide eaves with brackets on porch and upper levels. Ribbon windows under open tower. High fieldstone foundation.
The house was built in 1885 for Frederick Withoft. Mr. Withoft was one of the many influential Dayton businessmen who made the Huffman area his home. He was president of the Albaugh Nursery and Orchard Company. Late in 1900, he became the Postmaster of Dayton, OH. What is now the first floor TV room became the Linden Avenue Post Office.
This home was the residence of Congressman Mike Turner, the former mayor of Dayton and his family.
