Town Houses

-A A +A
1908, Carl Ruehrmund. 1525–1527 Grove Ave.

A pair of town houses illuminates another strain of the eclectic historicism of early twentieth-century architecture in the Fan, in this case a revival of the early sixteenth-century English Jacobean style. The houses have stepped gables that contrast with fanlights and Ioniccolumned porches drawn from a century and a half later.
