Salisbury House

-A A +A
1940, Morton B. Cleveland. 205 Blunt St.

By the 1920s Morton B. Cleveland had comfortably moved into the design realm of the period revival. In the 1930s many of his designs, as is the case here in the Salisbury house, expressed the popular Colonial Revival. The details of the house, especially the central gabled front with its pilaster supports and delicate, curved entrance porch, looked back to the American Federal style as well as to the English Regency mode.
