Brown House Restaurant (Brown House Hotel)

Brown House Hotel
1898, Thomas Brown. 208 N. Ridge St.

Thomas and Maude Brown's 1898 addition transformed a four-square into a rectangular hotel. Atop a stone foundation with log crossbeams are a maze of rooms on the first and second stories. Now an upscale restaurant, the house remains architecturally ambivalent, with both classical four-square simplicity and romantic Italianate bracketing, cresting, and porch trim.
