Also see . . .  Ford-MacNichol Home History. Excerpt:
The Ford-MacNichol Home is a textbook example of the Queen Anne architectural style of the late 19th century, with influences of the classical revival... great detail and forethought was taken into consideration in the design and construction. This is evidenced by the tower with witch’s hat roof, projecting gables, wrap-around porch and elaborate decorative trim.
