110-2nd Street SW, Carman

This house is one of the finest residential buildings in Carman. Built in about 1903 for Mary and Ella Woodruff, the house is a fantastic example of the Queen Anne style, and completely expressive of the style’s popular qualities and features—like the rich contrasts of materials (here brick and richly-detailed wooden details), the exuberant roof its many details (like the large brackets and exquisite gable-end fretwork), and the fine brick details, including the corner quoins.

That the house has been so carefully restored, with so many of its original architectural qualities still intact, is a tribute to various owners over the years. The Woodruff House is one of the five key buildings that help make the block of 2nd Street SW between 2nd and 3rd avenues such a notable area—packed with fine brick houses that proudly express the architectural ambitions of their owners, and of the Town of Carman at its height.
