This elegant home was inspired by the five-bay, center hall, raised cottage style designed by Frederick Wing for merchant John I. Adams on the eve of the Civil War. Raised on brick piers, the front entrance is accessed by a central stair. This Greek Revival raised cottage was a popular Garden District style in the 19th century. The roof-top parapet wall enhances the gallery while restrained ornamentation creates an overall serene and laconic effect. Many center hall raised cottages included dormer windows which allowed for increased living area in the attic area.
