Tredway House (now Elmswood Inn)

-A A +A
now Elmswood Inn
1887, later. 3251 Floyd Blvd.

This dwelling began as a small, nondescript farmhouse, but its modest life was ended when a low mansard roof and porches with Ionic columns were added. The lower portion of the building has a light-handed Beaux-Arts quality about it. The small mansard roof set on the wide entablature and cornice seems almost to be the roof of a distant building.
