Owens-Ross House – Rockridge

This large two-story house has a rectangular plan, painted brick walls and red tile hipped roof. Horizontality is emphasized by over-scaled oblong windows on the first and second stories. Reputedly the first house constructed in the neighborhood, it was built c. 1923 for Bryant Wesley Owens, a prominent lumberman. Zeno C. Ross, an attorney, bought the house in the mid 1930s. It remained in the Ross family until 1960.
