Warnock House

c. 1899, George F. Barber. 201 Maple St.
  • Warnock House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

The prolific architectural “salesman” George F. Barber provided Francis B. Warnock with one of his designs. The design of the Warnock house comes close to design No. 41B (p. 58) in Barber's New Model Dwellings and How Best to Build Them. The focus of this Queen Anne/Colonial Revival building is the three-story corner bay tower in front of which projects a spire-roofed bay of the wraparound porch. The two principal wings of the two-story house contain Palladian windows with exaggeratedly vertical central sections. The house is now operated as The Inn at Battle Creek.
