Link to information about this house
I love just this house! Second Empire architecture is my absolute favorite.
Built 1883, The Mansard Roof House is constructed in the Second Empire style and is notable for its mansard roof, a steep, decorative metal roof crowned with a cast iron railing of fleur-de-lis design. Frank W. Thornton, a substantial Fayetteville merchant, built the house. He never lived in the house and it is believed he built it to rent, even though its elaborated detail is unusual for a rental property. This house is the only good surviving example of this style of residential architecture in the Fayetteville area.
