1015. 820 W. Walnut - Colonial Revival

c. 1920 Character defining features of this notable example of the Classical Revival style of architecture include the six-oversix, double-hung windows and the simple porch columns. Note the brick lintels with decorative cement keystones above the windows. The massive brick chimney flanked with two quarter-circle openings is a common feature among Colonial Revival houses in the Old Silk Stocking Neighborhood. (Colonial Revival: This style became popular in the late nineteenth century. Buildings of this type have strictly symmetrical facades and are usually rectangular in plan with no or minimum projections. Eaves have classical detailing, and windows are usually doublehung sash.)
