  • Henke House (Richard Guy Wilson)

For evidence that eclecticism in American residential architecture survived well into the first decade of the twentieth century, one need only look at the design of this rather curious house. With its hipped roof, angled bays, and broad porch, the exterior reveals an informal Craftsman touch, even as its crenellated parapets and clustered porch piers hint at manorial aspirations.
