Hutchinson House

-A A +A
1883. 318 E. Jefferson St.

Robert Hutchinson and his son Frank P. Hutchinson were local stone contractors who built and most likely designed their own house. Their good-sized two-story masonry house was a little old fashioned in its references at this late date to the Italianate in its bracketed roof, the front porch with paired columns, and the segmental arched windows. But they brought the design up-to-date with a wide porch across the front, and through the central two-story bay that houses the entrance with side lights and high transom on the first floor, and a group of four elongated windows on the second floor. The first-floor windows for all of the principal rooms are carried to the floor, and all of the windows exhibit strongly projecting stone lintels.
