Late 19th century. 201 S. Washington Ave.

The industrialized south side of Pulaski, although grittier than the more fashionable north side, has a number of notable turn-of-the-twentieth-century buildings. One of the most distinctive residences is also one of the few Virginia houses that have so far been identified as a Palliser design. It is an adapted version of Plate 9 in Palliser, Palliser & Co.'s American Victorian Cottage Homes (1878). Although only one-and-a-half stories, the three-bay Carpenter Gothic frame house has a large quantity of intricate decoration, including balustrades on the porch and on the second-story central balcony, a steep entrance hood projecting from the porch, and wall dormers with decorated clipped gables supported by brackets.
