This large Columbus residence was constructed in 1907 and is an impressive example of the Prairie architectural style that goes beyond the more common American Foursquare. Wide overhanging eaves and an attached port de cochere and balcony create a horizontal emphasis which evokes the prairies of the Midwest. In the well-appointed interior of the residence, an ionic fluted colonnade divides the library from the main foyer displaying a classical influence, while the comparatively unadorned remaining woodwork, including the main stair and boxed beams, evoke the Arts and Crafts movement.
