Robert Davis House

-A A +A
1937, Charles J. Ross. 1707 Market St.
  • (West Virginia Collection within the Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division)

This large, superbly designed and crafted Tudor Revival house is faced with rough-hewn stone walls that contrast with smooth limestone window and door surrounds. Tall chimneys have molded clay stacks rising from stone bases, while a textured tile roof provides a sturdy cover. Were it not for Market Street traffic, one could imagine this house nestled in the heart of the English Cotswolds.
