This house stands at the cusp of change from Queen Anne to Colonial Revival. The exterior symbolizes a number of stylistic influences but arranges them in a highly controlled symmetry, especially on the façade. Stone, Carpenter & Willson moved quickly and gracefully from the Queen Anne to Colonial Revival, as houses included on this tour amply prove. Built for the son of an important textile manufacturer, the house was enlarged by the addition of a wing on the southwest corner for the second owner, Grace M. Reynolds.
