architectural comment

Just a quick post to get this blog up and running again.  I noticed this building in Galion for sale on the MLS and thought it was worth a comment.  The form and the parapet gables give away its beginnings as a Federal style mansion, inn, or commercial building from the 1830s perhaps.  At some time in the 1870s or so it appears it was updated with Italianate windows and brackets at the unusual combination.  For sale at 87,900 by the way.
