A lovely 1894 Alexander C. Eschweiler-designed home in the Historic Water Tower Neighborhood was recently an “At Home With…” feature in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“Among the home’s distinctive features are the flared eaves punctuated by 198 fishtail rafters. They resemble the upcurved eaves of Japanese pagodas. Eschweiler was known for his striking Japonist pagoda design for filling stations for Wadham’s Oil and Grease Company. One of the few remaining ‘Wadham’s pagodas’ is located in Cedarburg’s Washington Avenue Historic District.”
The feature and photo gallery includes interviews with the owners, Cate and Colin Scanes. The Scanes are HWTN members, and Colin is currently our treasurer.
