Averill House

-A A +A
c. 1885. 1120 2nd Ave. S.E.

A substantial two-and-a-half-story brick pile, the Averill house is accompanied by its own two-story brick stable. The obliquely placed corner bay tower is topped by a high hipped roof. The tower and the wall dormers suggest that the source is the French Second Empire style.
