1891 – Designed by T.J. Collins for City Treasurer Arista Hoge


STYLE: Richardsonian Romanesque

Named for Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-1886), its characteristics include a strong fortress-like masonry appearance with recessed entrances, over-sized carvings, round arches, short squatty columns, and a structurally solid look. This style was favored for county, state, and federal buildings (especially out west), and was well loved by Victorian robber barons of Brooklyn (NY).

This can be found at 215 Kalorama Street.
