Point of Interest Details

The Charles E. Schram home is a two-story Queen Anne structure built of coarsed ashlar limestone blocks. The home's outstanding feature is a large stone porch with an entryway highlighted by two massive stone arches that go to the ground unsupported by columns a feature of the Richardsonian Romanesque movement. Other features include a two-story circular bay with conical roof on the west side, a large two-story wooden aureole directly to the south of the bay, to fly at oriole windows on the ease in double decked porches with ornate radials and balusters on the rearview side. The multiple gable roofline is Slate with dormers and tall chimneys with corbel talks. The property is bordered by a limestone retaining wall on the south side of East alley sides.
