    1897 Queen Anne Colonial
    Cadiz, OH

    A nice example here of a popular house type in the late 1890’s combining the Queen Anne style with the obligatory tower (or turret) and the “Dutch” Colonial Revival style with the gambrel shaped gables. The oval Colonial windows at the top of the gables (sometimes also called “Cameo” windows) complete the picture. Additional multi-paned windows tie in with the Colonial theme as original Colonial era windows often had many small panes because of the early glass blowing techniques (“Crown glass”) in use at the time. Some of the windows look newer and may have been added later. The compact but well thought out formal interior indicates a published plan or plan book origin although I can’t connect this design with a specific architect or plan book publisher. Overall, this house appears to be well preserved and move-in ready. Streetview shows the house located on a sloped street with a number of other surviving vintage homes. From the visible vacant lots with steps going up to nowhere, it must have been a dense neighborhood originally.

    1885 Italianate.

    I love this house, just love it. It’s so sweet, welcoming, nicely kept up, and purty. I love the swoop trim? on the back staircase. Other nice old homes for neighbors.

    New ext, vintage int.

    My husband’s family is from there originally. He’s never taken me by this house when we’ve (quite infrequently) been “home”. I was last there several years ago and it was a dying town. In the past few years though, younger people have moved in and fixed up the downtown and some of the old houses. Oxford, where the University of Mississippi is located, is maybe a 30 minute or so drive away, so Water Valley is a town to get away from the busy-ness of a college town.

    Now I’m going to have to get him to take me back soon, so I can see the houses he hasn’t shown me!

    My heart is smitten by this small town house. I just love everything about it. Even the poor quality of the photos somehow enhances the dreamy feeling.
