George Washington Frank's Stone House on the Nebraska Prairie
"George Washington Frank's Stone House on the Nebraska Prairie" is an easy to read architectural study of a fascinating 1889 stone house. The design was based on two architectural styles—the Richardsonian Romanesque and the Shingle Style.
The Stone House is a two-and-a-half story structure that gives an impression as a three-story house on its exterior. The red Colorado sandstone and the English golden oak are the main materials of the house. The sandstones were sculpted on site and the stone chips were used as the foundation of the house.
There are five stone chimneys, has barrel-shaped clay tile roof, ten fireplaces, two indoor bathrooms, originally wired for electricity, had electrical lights and doorbells, and has a 5" x 10" Tiffany stained glass window located at the top of the second landing.
The elements of the created architectural style are discussed and presented in color photographs that make the reading more fun for all ages.
