Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Knable House, Shadyside

Knable house

A tasteful Jacobean house built in 1911, as we know from the date stone over the front door. It seems to have been built for a John E. Knable.(1)

Addendum: The architect was W. F. Struthers, who had formerly been partner with Thomas Hannah.(2)


Architectural historians sometimes use the term “Jacobethan” for a style that is indeterminately Tudor and Jacobean mashed together.
