Harriman House

-A A +A
c. 1863. 26 10th St. N.W.

This dwelling has been much added to and remodeled; it seems to have started life as an Italianate design, which was then taken over by Eastlake and Queen Anne influences. The main block of the house centers on a square bay on the first floor, with an open roofed porch above. To the left, the entrance porch cantilevers out of its gable and enriches it with fancy sawed bargeboards.
