Queen Anne House, Louisville

This house, with steep pitched roof and vents, appears to be a transition between late Gothic Revival and Queen Anne.

Twin Houses, 1880, Louisville

These adjacent gable front houses are essentially “twins”, with a slightly different placement of the doors and windows on the front.

Central Hallway House, Twin City

I call this a “Central Hallway House” for lack of a better term or more knowledge of its history, but I believe this house is quite historic. It has double chimneys on the south side. I hope to learn more.

Louisville’s Little House Lost to Fire

The news came yesterday that lightning had claimed the iconic Little House. The preservation community is devastated, with emotions ranging from sadness to disbelief. Cate Short summed it up: I still can’t believe that lightning missed her for 170 years and then struck her when she was finally being given the love she needed.

The J. C. Little House was perhaps the most famous in Louisville, and stood empty and neglected for many years. Known affectionately to some as “Louise”, it had recently become a symbol of perserverance in the preservation community.When it seemed all hope for its future was lost, Kevin and Laine Berry came to its rescue, determined to return it to its former glory. They regularly shared the progress on the Gothic Revival landmark on their various social media accounts. My heart goes out to them, and to all who have embraced this admirable project.

I drove up to Louisville today to see the ruins of the house myself. One of the second floor dormers was still visible.

That any of the house remains is a testament to the hard work done by the Louisville Fire Department and firefighters from all over Jefferson County.

Queen Anne House, Hoboken

This is one of two landmark Queen Anne houses in Hoboken. Both are unusually large examples of the form.
