Daniel Cooper House

-A A +A
1820, later ells. 1168 Victory Hwy.

This two-and-one-half-story Federal house with central chimney features another variant of the Union Village porch type (see North Smithfield). Whereas the examples in Foster tend to reduce the wide-spaced columns to posts ( FO5, FO16, and FO19), these are definitely columns with somewhat swollen entases. All other examples thus far seen use flat pilasters as responds; here they are half-round engaged columns. A gouged carpenter's version of rope molding occurs at the eaves of the half-hipped roof, with a delightfully primitive frieze of alternating projected squares and diamonds fashioned from latticing below it.
