A good sense of the presumed original appearance of the Fort Henry Club can be inferred from the facade of this mansion next door. Its five-bay facade has windows trimmed with plain Greek Revival lintels, while a small Ionic portico protects the central entrance. Knee, or frieze-band, windows in the frieze above light the top story. Along with the former Speidel House (next entry), this building is now a funeral home.
