Stewart House

-A A +A
1905. 411 Third Ave.

At the other end of the row from the Ballaine house is the Stewart house. Built for F. H. Stewart, who was treasurer of the Alaska Central Railroad until 1907, the one-story, hip-roofed house was originally shingled. Hinting at Richardsonian solidity, a handsome round tower rises just above the wide overhanging eaves. The gable-roofed front porch has been enclosed, and the building was stuccoed. A large ell has been added to the south. At the time of its construction, the newspaper noted, “It is designed to be one of the handsomest dwellings in town.”
