Carman Houses

-A A +A
T. B. Carman. 1936 (1806 and 1810 Washington Ave.), 1939 (1701 Washington Ave.)
  • Carman Houses (State Historic Preservation Office, West Virginia Division of Culture and History, Bernard Allen)

The neighboring houses at 1806 and 1810 Washington Avenue are textbook examples of proper Tudor Revival design. They have irregularly massed stone walls, gabled slate roofs, leaded casement windows with hood molds, and terra-cotta pots emerging from stone chimney bases. The house at 1701 Washington Avenue is constructed of brick with half timbering, rather than stone, but displays the same characteristic motifs. Carman designed all three houses for families associated with the Parkersburg Rig and Reel Company.
