Today we look at the 1910 Hurd Residence. A vibrant example of Craftsman-Gothic this home is named after first resident Charles Hurd, a mortgage and investment banker from Nebraska whose company underwrote many of the residential homes surrounding Victoria Park.
Above you see the home as it was in May of 2013, below as it was in May of 1912.
The front of the Hurd:
The Hurd main Entrance Way, circa 1912. Play the Panorama below it to see how unchanged it is today.
One of two Newel Post Lamps on the Main Staircase.
The current owners inhabit the Hurd simply, letting the Gothic interior dominate every space.
Two stained glass windows; one above the Living Room Fireplace, the other in the Dining Room.
The Dining Room circa 1912; notice the Chandelier which is still in use today as seen in the Gallery below.
The Chauffeur's Room in its original state and as it is in 2013, opened up with an entrance to a new Breakfast Nook.
We end with the the second Newel Post Lamp, on the Staircase Landing.
