Notes
Survey number HABS TN-208
Significance: The Joseph H. Warner Home, built 1890-91 and designed by Townsend and Stone, Chattanooga architects, is among the grandest of the high Queen Anne structures in Chattanooga. Its pressed red brick with stone trim is indicative of the Romanesque architecture that dominated the finer residences of the commercial and industrial aristocracy of the post-reconstruction South. The residence's solid oak panelling and woodwork, its large hallways, its mantlepieces and tile work, its elegant terra cotta and rusticated stone trim, its turret and steep pitch roof covered with slate, and its asymmetrical plan characterize a house that was expressly designed with a desire for luxury and opulence, but also for efficiency, comfort, and naturalness.
