Historic Profile: The Bardwell-Ferrant House is a local representative of the national interest in exotic stylistic themes in the late nineteenth century. Constructed in 1883 for Charles Bardwell, the house was originally located at 1800 Park Avenue. It was moved to its present site in 1898 to make way for the construction of an apartment building. The original, basic Queen Anne form of the dwelling was transformed in 1890 into a Moorish fantasy through the addition of onion domed towers, ogee arch shapes and deep-toned stained glass lights. Emil Ferrant employed locally prominent architect Carl F. Struck to transform the home using Moorish design themes. The Bardwell-Ferrant House is an unusually picturesque representative of exotic forms applied to traditional architectural styles and, as such, is an important asset to the community.
