Notes
Survey number HABS KS-53-P
Building/structure dates: 1898 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1962 subsequent work
National Register Number: 66000346
Significance: Building #12 is a large, imposing variation on the center-gable cottage, embellished with classical elements of the Colonial Revival. The basic angularity of the building is emphasized by joined and double pedimented gables, repeated on the facade porch, and by flattened arches on the bays. The combination of the brick lower section and frame second story and eaves is unusual at this post, seen only in this and two like residences built in 1898. Since the transition from frame to brick construction was complete by 1880, this combination may have been in the interest of fashion or of economy, or both. The building site is significant as a part of the early Cantonment and as the site of a third Syracuse house (1856-1890). Building #12 was part of the building expansion of the 1890's, built in the year of the Spanish-American War - a year crucial to the future mission of the school.
