Kittredge Building

A. Morris Stuckert
1891



Richardson Romanesque

This late nineteenth century building is influenced by the very popular style introduced by Henry Hobson Richardson. See, for example, his Cheney Block in Hartford, Connecticut, a store and office building with superimposed arcades. Unlike Richardson who often used contrasting masonry, here the rusticated stone is the same tonality.

The central bay in the front

The central bay in the front is marked by the entrance portal at the bottom and a pediment on the top. The entrance portal has "Romanesque" sculptural details as well as obvious signage.
