Ackermann House

-A A +A
1888. Edgar W. Wells. 2319 Chapline St.
  • Ackermann House (Jack E. Boucher)
  • Ackermann House (Michelle Krone)

The center of this mansard-roofed house bulges out with a two-story bay that contains the entrance. A rounded third-story turret on one corner, supported by corbels, is totally superfluous but delightful.
