Historic Profile: Believed to be an example of the type of homes erected by tract developers, the Harry F. Legg House on Park Avenue was standard for middle-to upper-class professional families in the late nineteenth century. A classic example of Queen Anne architecture, this house is one of the few remaining structures that have maintained its original architectural integrity. The interior has been only slightly altered and still displays the ornate woodwork that may have come from the "made to order" or factory catalogs that were prominent in the late 1800s.
