Regarding Dwight and Kate Wade House.
The Dwight and Kate Wade house is a replica of the Garden Home at The Town of Tomorrow exhibit of the 1939-40 New York World’s Fairs. The Wades purchased the plans for this home while on their honeymoon. Salomonsky designed the house with a unique combination of Art Moderne and Colonial Revival styles. The two-story dwelling features parapeted end facades; a gambrel roof covered with slate; twin chimneys on each end façade. The side porch is supported by Doric columns, in shape of a half-circle. Dwight Wade, Sr., a prominent Sevierville merchant and civic leader lived in the house until his death in 2008 at age 101.
