Waterbury House

-A A +A
1900–1901. 501 Spriggs St.

The design of the Waterbury house would appear to be from the same hand as the Colonial Revival Fitzgerald house at 305 North Jackson Street ( NO042). Though not identical, the three roof dormers of the Waterbury house assert themselves in a fashion almost like that of the dormers on the Fitzgerald dwelling. The Waterbury house has walls of brick, a single-floor porch across the entire front, and an angled bay on the second floor directly above the entrance.
