Created By: Matt Parbs


H. W. Seaman House (James Hass Apartments), 516 5th Avenue South; 1904; John Morrell & Son, Architects, of Clinton; Daniel Haring, Builder.The house makes use of warm-hued brick, terra cotta, store trim, and tiled hip roof. The former mansion has been converted to twelve apartments. The design of the building is eclectic with use of symmetry and rustification of the lower-story "base" in the Renaissance Revival Style. The design also freely borrows from the Georgian Revival Style. This influence includes the front porch Ionic columns and the stylized Palladian window motif above the porch. In addition, the hip roof and horizontal emphasis suggests and awareness of Prairie School Style development in Chicago.
