Nathanial Russell House Commentary
"The stair in the Russell House is one of the most graceful to be seen as it whirls free of wall, to the third floor. The smooth white plaster planes accent its slender mahogany rail, while the stair treads and risers set up a staccato angularity. It is extraordinary technically and esthetically."
"Although the plan of the Russell House shows influences of Britain's Robert Adam (1728-92), such as the ovoid drawing room opposite the stair, the exterior is basically in the then-burgeoning Federal Style. But its greatest distinction is its stair coiling almost through the roof."
— G. E. Kidder Smith. Looking at Architecture. p120.
