Julian – Lollis – Bradford Home: 201 East Wheeling Street


This brick Victorian home with a Greek Revival influence was built in the mid-1850s. It is situated on the original lot 5 of Square 19. The home features include brackets and deep-silled windows, Ionic columns typical of earlier classic eras, and cornices with distinguished bulls-eye decoration. The iron fence surrounding the lot was made by Roger’s Iron Co. out of Springfield, Ohio in 1881.

In 1855 there was an ad in the paper announcing: “a private sale of Brick House on the Northeast corner of High and Wheeling Street. There were all the needful conveniences on the property, such as a well, cistern, stable, etc., pleasantly situated and is altogether one of the most desirable private dwellings in the city.”

In 1943 the ad in the paper to sell the house read: “8 room brick with attached garage, bath on second floor, lavatory on first floor, forced air furnace with stoker, attractive circular stairway, modern kitchen, house weather-stripped, low maintenance cost.”

The inside features Victorian woodwork and inside shutters, wide arches between rooms, transoms above many windows, a spiral stairway with scrolled steps in the front hall, and narrow, winding, encased stairs at the rear.

The home is a private residence.
