Gallery Copy: William T. Marchant designed several houses similar to this one in Hartford and nearby West Hartford during the early part of the twentieth century. The address of this particular house is unknown, but the style and date suggest that it was built either in the West End of Hartford or in the immediate area. Anyone with knowledge of the location of this house is invited to contact the Connecticut Historical Society at [email protected]
Description: Plans for a three story house in the "farm house" style; featuring a gable roof with projecting eaves, front porch, gable roof dormers, and rear porch with second floor balcony. Windows on the house are primarily louvered double-hung sash windows in the eight-over-one, six-over-one, or four-over-one configurations. Two drawings are included in the set; front elevation and rear elevation.
Subject Note: Whilst drawings for Job #81 (1999.100.332.1-.7), Job #82 (1999.100.331.1-.2), and Job #83 (1999.100.313.1-.14) suggest individual houses, they share a common style with subtle differences in the roof plans, and near identical floor plans. If built, these house likely reside in the same neighborhood.
