Clermont House Hotel

-A A +A
1853 and later. Northwest corner of Union and Larrabee streets

A tall cupola surmounts the hipped roof of this two-story brick Italianate building. What appears to be a later addition contains an unusual two-story balconied porch supported by four wood piers that spring from the ground and rise to the roof's entablature.
