Frederick Elliott House, 2609 E. Leigh Street

Year Built: 1847

Architectural Style: Italianate

District: Church Hill North

The house was built in 1847 with additional improvements in 1874 by Elliot. It is an elegant frame, Italianate townhouse with an exceptionally pleasant Eastlake front porch with very tall windows rising from the floor. The first-floor windows are framed with full-length louvered shutters, a rare survival in the neighborhood. Its front door has narrow, vertical panes of glass. The cornice is well detailed with the use of different paint colors.
