Internationally Recognized Architecture

Architect George W. Maher designed and built this building in 1912 as a home for Mr. and Mrs. James Hall Taylor and their family. The style of the house is "Early Modern Rectilinear." It is broad, monumental, and dignified. 

Its Prairie Style characteristics include a hipped roof, pronounced horizontal features and bands of windows under deep eaves. When entering by the front door, the first thing you see is the beautiful arched window on the first floor landing.
