Sherman Seaman House/ W. H. Roehl House

Clinton, Iowa 52732, United States

Created By: Matt Parbs


Sherman Seaman House/ W. H. Roehl House, 746 5th Avenue South; 1909.A two-story stucco house with wood trim, the building is irregular in plan. It has a hip roof of wide, over-hanging eaves with a flat soffit of wood, and a large, full-width front porch. The building has many of the characteristics of the Prairie School Style. With simplicity of form, stress on the repose of the horizontal line, and absence of traditional stylistic elements, the house exhibits the design approach of the Frank Lloyd Wright-led Prairie School movement. The front porch, use of double-hung windows, and small chimney (although centrally located) are concessions to traditional construction.
