Britcher House

-A A +A
1899. 208 W. 8th St.

The vertical form of this dwelling is Queen Anne, but all of its detailing is Colonial Revival. Especially captivating are the sawed balustrades of the entrance porch. The curved contour of a traditional balustrade has been rendered in one-inch boards, and the curved sawed profile has been turned at a right angle and projected outward.
