Annie M. Mulhall House

-A A +A
1879, Owen Donnelly. 520 5th St. SE

Nice proportions with tall slender windows and a particularly fine bracketed cornice distinguish the Mulhall house, one of the architect-builder's many Capitol Hill homes. Donnelly repeated the curve of the slight arch over the windows in the triple arch of the entablature, a small detail that added greatly to the house's sophistication. The $1,600 Italianate Mulhall house seems never to have had cast-iron window hoods.
