Miller-Curtis House

-A A +A
1902, C. W. Bulger. 1004 N. Main St.

This curious horizontally elongated residence is almost identical to the one designed by Galveston-based Bulger in Galveston in 1900 and shows the shifting of architectural tastes in its combination of such Queen Anne elements as the rounded corner porch and the influences of early-twentieth-century Colonial Revival and Arts and Crafts elements. Constructed of red brick, the house built for William R. Miller is wrapped by a porch with exaggerated, inversely tapered columns. A second-floor balcony sports bulbous colonnettes.
