Notes
Survey number HABS WV-208
Building/structure dates: 1858 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1957 subsequent work
Significance: Built about 1858, this is a fine example of a house which incorporates elements from two design styles: The Adam Style, and the Romano-Tuscan Mode of the Renaissance Revival Style. This house was built for Henry K. List, a wholesale merchant and banker whose son, Ambrose, succeeded him as president of the City Bank of Wheeling and continued to live in this house until his death. A first floor interior doorway has glass side panels thought to be a rare example of Sweeney glass.
