  • Weston House (Richard Guy Wilson)

Now offices, this former residence is most notable for the delicate cast iron supports and lacelike bracketing of its wraparound porch. Because of its low mansard roof, the house might be deemed Second Empire, but its brick and terra-cotta exterior reveals the influence of the Néo-Grec style, particularly in the quirky handling of the doors and windows.
