    The Taylorville house is one of several Illinois examples of this particular George F. Barber design. Another one stands in Decatur, IL, and yet another is in Ottawa, IL. The Taylorville house was until recently a Bed & Breakfast establishment. If it were mine, I’d consider making a few changes inside that would more closely tie it back to the Victorian era but the surviving period details are wonderful.

  3. It looks like a modified George Barber. Famously, the Bloom County house in Iowa City, on Bloomington street and the sad demise of the Grand Ann in Keokuk a few years ago are the same design. Beautiful homes.

    The first house I owned had vintage newsprint wallpaper in the bathroom. George Barber was one of the advertisements on the newsprint and this design was featured. It was my first exposure the him and his designs. I have been a fan ever since. This house is a beauty!
