Snowden House (now Waterloo Women's Club)
On a hilltop eminence far back from the street sits this splendid brick Italianate house. The scheme is that of the two-story centralgable form with walls that display wonderfully inventive entablatures over the principal windows. A porch covering the entire front of the house helps to tie the building to the site. Under the broadly overhanging gable and roof eaves is a wide paneled entablature which is enhanced by numerous rows of dentils and the large roof brackets.
