Judge Woodward House

-A A +A
1848, c. 1874. 501 E. Mississippi Dr.

This brick house started out as a late Federal-style design. Around 1874 it was substantially enlarged and remodeled, transforming it into an Italianate/French Second Empire dwelling. A narrow third floor was added; bays were projected off various elevations, a heavy classical cornice was added, and the side bay emerged above the roof with a segmented concave roof.
