Mann House

c. 1890. c. 1910, porch addition. 518 32nd St.
  • Mann House (Pierre Courtois)

This impressive example of Queen Anne architecture was pictured in early promotional literature for Woodland Heights. Unfortunately, the economic depression of the 1890s put a stop to lavish architectural essays such as this. The design was probably taken from a pattern book such as those by George Barber. Constructed of wood with a corner tower, it displays a variety of ornamental details including halftimbering, scroll-sawn brackets, and turned spindle posts. The side bay with the secondfloor loggia combines both Queen Anne and the earlier Eastlake motifs.
