James Harris House
Backstory and Context
This home is designed in the style of Second Empire, which is commonly seen in France in the 19th century. A key feature of this style is the mansard roof. These roofs have four slopping sides and become very steep. It is also common for this type of home to share similar attributes to the Italianate style around the windows and porches.
