Eckhart House

-A A +A
1891–1892. 810 Main St.
  • (West Virginia Collection within the Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division)
  • Eckhart House (Jack E. Boucher)

Second Empire, Romanesque Revival, and Queen Anne contribute stylistically to this architectural pastiche, while pressed brick, pressed metal, terra-cotta, and slate make up the fabric. Although the house stands two and one-half stories above a raised basement, its location between larger apartment houses makes it seem smaller than it actually is.
