Significance: In 1855, James Ward, a carpet merchant, bought land for his future residence which was completed around 1875 and remained in the same family until the early decades of the twentieth century. This building is Italianate in style, with a trace of Second Empire influence. Typically Italianate are the asymmetrical design of the exterior including a tower and projecting bay, the tall narrow windows, the round-arched door, the eaves supported by brackets, and the picturesque porch. However, the mansard roof of the tower has a Second Empire source. Viewed overall, the Ward House is one of the most attractive examples of Italianate architecture in Lafayette.
