At 1189 Woodward Ave..... one more visit to this avenue for #mansardmonday . Undoubtedly one of the most impressive & ornate Woodward mansions was the #lostmansion of Wilhelm Boeing built in 1875. Wilhelm was the father of William E. Boeing, aviation pioneer & founder of Boeing Co.

Father Wilhelm however made his fortune as a lumber baron. Emigrating from Germany & arriving in Detroit in 1868, he first started as a farm laborer. Tho coming from rich family, parental disapproval to move to America cut off any financial support for him! Opportunity opened up for him when Wilhelm got into the lumber business thru his future father-in-law.
Seven years later Wilhelm would be living in his flamboyant Second Empire palace! Unfortunately he died at the young age of 42 of influenza in 1890. In 1896 his widow sold the house to Michael J. Murphy, founder of Murphy Chair Co, one of the largest chair manufacturers in the world.

Murphy sold the manse in 1905 to investors who divided it up for apts till it was later demolished date unknown.

Please swipe...1) as mansion appears in 1881 ....2) on right of Boeing home is neighboring mansion (circa 1873) of C. R. Mabley department store mogul....3) Wilhelm manse looking mysterious among mature trees in 1900....4) manse in late 1910’s(neighbor’s house demolished in 1910) notice apt bldgs & multiple housing replacing mansions. Tis the way of progress!😕. #secondempirearchitecture #secondempire #mansard #secondempirestyle

#mansardmonday Hopewell Station located in Hopewell, #NewJersey. The Delaware and Bound Brook Railroad built this station in 1876 as part of the planned National Railway route between New York City and Washington, D.C. The station was leased by the Philadelphia and Reading Railway in 1879. Train service to the station was terminated in 1983. Today, it is owned by Hopewell Borough and the first floor is used as community space.

1869. (2 photos - current, and 1898) This beautiful Katonah home has a fascinating history. It was the home of Dr. J. Francis Chapman, who built the house for his family in 1869 in Old Katonah. When the village was moved in the 1890s to build a reservoir (flooding the old village), the house was moved along with 55 other buildings to “new” Katonah. Please swipe to see the second photo of the house being moved - it’s amazing! It took 6 months to move it, and the family lived in it the entire time (you can see the laundry hanging to dry on the porch). I actually posted this home a long time ago, but I think this shot came out better 😌 (photo source: www.westchesterarchives.com ... info source: http://www.katonahvis.com)

Happy Mansard Monday!

Y'all! This historic three story beauty has the most ahhhmazing paneled entry way I have ever seen. It is now a private residence, but if you are ever in the Columbus area and have the opportunity to view it when it's open to the public you must go!

3, rue de Tilsitt (angles of avenues Hoche and Friedland)
This mansion is one of the coordinated series “hotels des maréchaux” designed in 1853 by architect Jacques-Ignace Hittorff for Place de l’Etoile (now place Charles de Gaulle).
It was Prefect Haussmann’s idea to create an entire urban composition around the Arc de Triomphe; the series of mansions form a large circus with twelve avenues radiating out like the spokes of a wheel, as can be seen from the top of the monument. For the architecture of the place de l’Etoile, Jacques-Ignace Hittorff proposed a scheme consisting of low buildings that would enhance the Arc de Triomphe. Haussmann disliked the idea but the emperor Napoleon III agreed with the architect. Here this is the back of one U-shaped mansion with a courtyard and a glass canopy.

Robert W. Sample House of 1865. Peat says” The Sample residence at Lafayette retained the strict symmetry of the Renaissance. The feeling of refined aloofness which it seemed to convey was due to this formality plus the restraint in the use of ornamentation.” Sadly, this house was demolished sometime before Peat published Indiana Houses in 1962. #indianahistory #historicarchitecture #houseportrait #historicpreservation #mansardmonday #oldarchitecture #oldhouse #secondempire #lafayetteindiana #neatpeat

Former Masonic Temple. Belfast, Maine. 1877. On the National Register of Historic Places since 1973.

This classic Second Empire home was built in 1885 for Christian M. Traub of Traub Brothers & Company, a prominent jewelry firm in Detroit during the late 19th century. In 1879, the Traub Bros. moved north into a building at 118 Woodward Avenue. This building would become an elegant Grand Trunk Railroad ticket station. Since the '30s, it has been several incarnations of a bar/restaurant. It is now known as @grandtrunkpub. #Detroit #BrushPark #MidtownDetroit #SecondEmpire #VictorianArchitecture #archi_ologie #oldhouselove #casasecasarios #houses_ofthe_world #beautifulhouseoldandnew #MansardMonday #RawDetroit #PureMichigan #PureMittigan #MotorCityShooters #PureDetroit313 #DepictTheD #VisitDetroit #Michiganders #IGersDetroit #detroit_igers #ThisPlaceMatters #ThisPlaceMattersDetroit #MichiganPlacesMatter
