Fitzgerald House

-A A +A
1903. 305 N. Jackson St.

High on the gambrel roof of this Colonial Revival dwelling is a set of three dormers with dramatic roofs. The wide center one exhibits a segmental curved roof with flat ends; the gable roofs of the two to the sides project out far beyond the face of the dormers. Below is the common composition of a central two-story porch with a single-floor porch crossing underneath it. The lower porch has a cut-limestone base carried up to form the balustrade.
