C. E. Dilworth House

-A A +A
1912. 222 St. Peter St.

Here the sibling rivalry between the Dilworth brothers comes to a conclusion, with banker C. E. surpassing his brother's R. S. Dilworth House ( SF12) with this grand, classical frame residence. The enormous two-story porch, which wraps around three sides of the two-story structure, is highlighted by a projecting semicircular columnar portico.
