1013. 911 W. Walnut - Cross Plan/Queen Anne

c. 1895 Fishscale or scallop shingles in the gable end, and the decorative porch with turned balusters are characteristics used to identify this house as Queen Anne. Important original features also include original windows and doors, and the bay window on the side of the house. (Cross-Plan/Queen Anne: An interesting variation of the gable-front house is the Cross-Plan with a large gable on each side. The Greek-cross plan was widely used in Byzantine architecture and in Western churches inspired by Byzantine examples. It is a plan in the form of a Greek cross, with a square central mass and four arms of equal length.)
