H. A. Kelly House

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


H. A. Kelly House (B. C. Hass Apartments), 740 5th Avenue South; 1910; John Morrell & Son, Architects, of Clinton.This is a three-story brick house with a hip roof. Except for the porch railing and steps, the exterior appearance is much the same as originally built; however, the interior has been altered with conversion to six apartment units.The house is similar in composition to the H. W. Seaman House at 516 5th Avenue South, butt is of smaller scale and greatly simlified in design approach. Symetry is retained; however, the wall surfaces are subdued, windows are grouped, and horizontal lines are emphasized. The result is a more modern design based more upon Prairie School principles. Only the limited use of lonic columns suggests an eclectic influence.
