Finkbine House

-A A +A
1896, attrib. William Foster. 1915 Grand Ave.

The design of this brick Queen Anne house depends upon the classical inspiration of the Colonial Revival. Classical pediments, cornices detailed with dentils, and porches supported by Doric columns contrast with the general narrow verticality of the volumes and of the windows and doors.
