History

White-Love House: impressive 2-story Queen
Anne style house is superb example of the
style's definitive asymmetrical combination
of bays, gables, towers, and porches;
exuberant finish reflects growing popularity
of elements of the Colonial Revival style; Lplan core is covered by modified cross-gable
roof that terminates with pedimented gabled
enclosing diminutive Palladian windows; cutaway soffits above 2-story polygonal bays are
decorated with robust circular floral
medallion; center of house is dominated by
partially-inset three-stage tower, with the
lower stage being an entry vestibule with
handsome double-leaf door, the middle stage a
small second story porch, and the upper stage
an octagonal room covered by an octagonal
roof that tapers to an elegant metal finial;
extensive porch wraps across front and both
side elevations, with each corner ~ccented by
an octagonal pavilion that echoes main tower,
and the central steps marked by a small
pediment that echoes the roof; slender Tuscan
porch columns are raised on wooden pedestals
connected by turned balusters; pent window
hoods and all cornices are embellished with
stylized egg-and-dart molding that was
popular throughout city at turn of the
century; merchant W. H. White supposedly
operated a successful saloon, but arrival of
local prohibition ca. 1905 put him out of
business; house lost to foreclosure and bought in 1910 by butcher William T. Love,
Sr.; given in 1918 to son David M. Love
(1890-1975), also the proprietor of a
downtown meat market, who had occupied since
1915 with wife, Katye (1888-1976); moved
fifty-three feet back from street in early
1970s when Ehringhaus Street was widened to
five lanes; this house is the only survivor
of a number of handsome houses along this
street, all being demolished for the
widening; house remains in family ownership.
Garage: large 2-car garage with end gables
accented by boxed cornice returns; enlarged
between 1914 and 1923 by addition of shed
storage rooms at rear; entire building was
moved in early 1970s when street was widened.
