Steele House – College

The Steele House is a large two and one-half story brick residence, formally composed as a gabled rectangular block with central pedimented entry and symmetrically arranged windows. A terrace extends across the front and small loggia projects from the south wall. Foundations and terrace are of rusticated stone construction. The house was built c. 1926 for John P. Steele, vice president and general manager of the Wagner Supply Co., and remained in the Steele family for about 40 years. Reputedly, the house was constructed by a French builder named Lebeouf, who used materials from an older fire-damaged house.
