Blair House - 1971 Tour, 1984 Tour, 1996 Tour


Mr. Charles B. Blair built his lovely Elizabethan Revival style home in 1925, the half-timbering making its Tudorinfluence readily apparent. Typical of the English style are the many small paned mullioned windows. Note the interesting oriel window with its leaded diamond-shaped panes. This home was converted to a two-family home and then in 1969, back to a single-family residence, making it one of t he first homes to become part of what is a growing movement in the historic district -- the reconversion of homes, increased owner occupancy and a resulting decrease in residential density.
