Morien House

-A A +A
1859. 2226 W. Main St.

This is the best preserved of the few antebellum suburban houses remaining in the Fan. The board-and-batten siding, portico, and bracketed cornice are Italianate, and the design probably owes a debt to the various publications of Andrew Jackson Downing or one of his contemporaries.
