Row Houses

-A A +A
c. 1908, Albert F. Huntt. 2114–2116 Hanover Ave.

Another row of Georgian Revival town houses exhibits a different method of creating individuality. Huntt varied the brickwork, alternating between coursed and rusticated facades. Each of the houses has a strong entablature with brick panels, corner brackets, and modillions. Originally each building on this row had a onebay entrance porch. Only one porch survives; denuding houses by removing porches was fashionable in the Fan in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s.
