Talbott-Wall House – Samuels

141 915 Samuels Avenue [NR/SAHD{NR)], Talbott-Wall House, 1903. Several other houses existed on this site before Dr. Richard D. Talbott had this partially shingled Colonial Revival residence built in 1903. Talbott, a physician, had first purchased the property in 1898. The Talbotts lived here for many years; Elizabeth Talbott lived in the home after her husband’s death. Their daughter, Frances, married Lewis D. Wall, Sr., and they occupied the house following Mrs. Talbott’s death, from about 1945 until Frances Wall died in 1987. The property remains in the Wall family. In largely original condition, the house has a corbelled gambrel roof with fanciful dormer-like porches. The house is individually eligible for the National Register for its architectural qualities and is a contributor to the proposed Samuels Avenue National Register Historic District. It is part of the 1991 Multiple Property nomination.
