Greek Revival Two-Door House

Greek Revival Two-Door House

W_LeMay
This is a model of a real-life house located at 2551 Bartlett Street in Cincinnati, Ohio. Constructed in the mid-19th Century, this brick house was built in the vernacular style, and stands at the edge of the neighborhood, predating the surrounding houses by at least a decade. Possibly the remnant of a former farm, this house does not match the general prevailing built form of the neighborhood, with most houses having their narrow end facing towards the street, while this house has its wide end facing the street. The house has an interesting feature of two front doors, which mirror each other on either side of the center of the house. This feature is not commonly seen in other houses in the area, and is something that was more common in the early-to-mid-19th Century. Today, this appears to be the oldest remaining house on the northern portion of the hill, and is a relic of the early years of the neighborhood's development. Feel free to use this model as you see fit, on the condition that you contact me first so I know where it is being used (I'd love to see it wherever it ends up), and give me a mention or credit wherever it is used or published. #Cincinnati #GreekRevival #Farmhouse #HistoricArchitecture
