Edwards-Swayze House

-A A +A
1876. 1110 9th St.

A drive leads past the small entrance porch that exhibits open spindlework above the thin columns. The windows on the first and second floors have wide, thick, slightly curved lintels, and the roofscape features dormers, tall chimneys, and spire tower roofs. It all adds up to a classic early Queen Anne design. The interior still possesses much of its original woodwork and wall covering, including an embossed ceiling and papered wainscot.
