I could have sworn I’d posted all of these buildings before, but apparently not. The house above was actually originally a school, sitting on the northeast corner of the intersection of Fourteenth and Hebert.
Heading west, we encounter one of the most intact blocks in all of Old North.
There is a wall of Second Empire houses, and I suspect that maybe some of them were renovated into the style in the mid- to late-Nineteenth Century.
There was probably a window on the second floor below.
Second Empire houses, like the one below, and most houses in the Nineteenth Century, would have possessed bright colors on the millwork, as well as the slate Mansard roofs.
There are other earlier styles, as well.
Sadly, the little house that I photographed back in June of 2016 did not make it, and is now mostly collapsed.
I remember when a house across the street collapsed because the rehabbers took out too much of the foundations and it was undermined back in May of 2008.
