Edwards House – Jennings

The Edwards House is a large two-story structure clad in light brown brick. In composition it is a hipped masonry block with low-slung wrap-around porch. A balcony with curved parapet and a horizontal oval window on the south wall seem incongruous compared to the overall severe massing and restrained ornament. The first owner was Patrick H. Edwards, president of a company dealing in bonds, loans and general insurance. The house has been subdivided into apartments, but retains many original interior features. With further documentation, it might be eligible for the National Register. The Edwards House has been demolished.
