APARTMENT BUILDING (1900-1920)

Carpenter-BuilderThis is not a style but rather a building type which is significant to the character of Herron-Morton Place. The buildings are relatively large, two and three story apartment structures built alongside smaller single family and double houses. They were built over a short period of time, primarily along Talbott Street. Although they adopt a variety of architectural styles, they are generally block-like buildings which cover a large portion of their sites and present to the street well-articulated facades (often covered with ample porches).

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Two and three stories.
  • Usually flat roofs.
  • Block-like form with narrow end usually toward the street.
  • Many windows and doors facing the street.
  • Front porches, often on each floor.
