George Anderton House

-A A +A
1907. 33 Alfred Drown Rd.

This rather plainly formed but richly detailed dwelling with its rusticated concrete block foundation, stocky concrete veranda columns bristling with banded rustication, clapboard and cut shingle wall cover, and scrolled chimney is of a type of Queen Anne design more common in central or western states than in Rhode Island, where this example may even be unique. Disembodied Richardsonian Romanesque belligerence appears in incongruous combination with overly exquisite shingle patterning.
