Rhodes House – Westover

This distinctive house, at the gateway to the older section of Westover Hills, was constructed in 1936 by A. C. Luther’s contracting firm. EdwardL. Wilson and Joseph J. Patterson were the architects of the house. City Directories show that A. C. Luther resided in the house a short time before selling the property in 1938 to Bernard G. Rhodes, a builder. The one and one-half story house, faced in soft-toned brick, has a long rectangular plan under a steeply pitched gable roof clad in clay shingle tiles. A picturesque composition is formed by the central stairwell turret with conical roof. Fine details include brick corbeling on the turret and stone trim on the arched entry. Except for an enclosed archway, the house appears in excellent, unal tered condition, and has remained in the family.
