Description
The DeGuire-Ludowitzki House, built about 1907, is a locally notable example of a modest Colonial Revival-style residence in the foursquare form. Foursquare homes are generally two stories tall with four relatively equally-sized rooms on each floor arranged around an entry and stair. Foursquare residences were a flexible house type and could exhibit a number of styles, including Colonial Revival, which drew inspiration from classical architecture. The DeGuire-Ludowitzki House exhibits the style though the symmetrical placement of windows and doors with decorative trim, round wood Doric columns supporting the wrap-around porch, corner boards, and wide fascia at the roofline. Charles Francis DeGuire, who was the son of one of Silverton’s established families, constructed the home. He later sold the residence to German immigrant and local builder John Ludowitzki and his wife Mary. The house remained in the Ludowitzki family after their death until 1938.
