General information

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.
