Before the building of the 1990s wing on the south side that overpowers the original block, like those included originally on Magid, this was one of Providence’s most appealing Federal Revival houses. Designed by Norman Isham and drawing heavily on the early nineteenth-century architecture by John Holden Greene, it was the most archaeological of his original designs – perhaps a foreshadowing of his ultimate architectural calling, the restoration of historic buildings. This house, like so many of Isham’s, was built for a professor at Brown University.
