Backstory and Context
Built in 1881, the Terry-Jung House is constructed in the Italianate Style. The Italianate Style is abundantly represented throughout Little Rock's Quapaw Quarter. Drawing from the architectural style of the Italian Renaissance, this style of architecture appeared in England in approximately 1802 and was then embellished during the late Regency and Victorian eras. The popularization of this style saw it spread throughout Europe and into the United States in the nineteenth century. Here it is seen in its nineteen-century Little Rock version. Now restored, the Terry-Jung House is located on Scott Street amongst many other historic properties. Across the street is a large repurposed loft building, originally a school. Farther down Scott are more sites of interest to tourists and enthusiasts of nineteenth-century architecture, including the stunning Villa Marre.
