107 Ardmore Ave

Year Built: c. 1881-1896

Comments: This house stands as an excellent residential example of the Second Empire style, borrowed from the public architecture of France and well-displayed on Philadelphia's City Hall, which was constructed in the 1870s. Its curved mansard roof, elaborate round-topped dormers, decorative window caps and brackets, and projecting center section all contribute to its grand effect and exemplify the Second Empire style.
