Notes
Survey number HABS WV-200
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-57).
Building/structure dates: 1852 initial construction
Significance: This two-story residence was built by William Paxton in 1852. His son, James Paxton, lived here when he helped draw up West Virginia's first state constitution. It exemplifies the Romano-Tuscan mode of the Renaissance Revival style. The later Adamesque Colonial Revival entry portico with semi-elliptical fan light and sidelights, the Romano-Tuscan window details and roof top cupola are particularly interesting. Since 1902 three generations of Robert J. Reeds have lived and practiced medicine in this house.
