Georgian House in Schenley Farms

Georgian house

This was one of the original houses put up in 1906 by the developers of Schenley Farms. The architects were Billquist & Lee. Billquist is Thorsten E. Billquist, the architect who designed the Allegheny Observatory. Lee is Edward B. Lee, who left Billquist in 19101 to found his own practice and flourished as a designer of theaters and clubs, and as architect of record for the City-County Building (though Lee later said he had only executed drawings from designs by Henry Hornbostel).

  1. American Architect, April 20, 1910: “Mr. Edward B. Lee, architect, announces that he has severed his connection with the firm of Billquist & Lee and has opened offices for the practice of his profession at 318 Berber Building, Pittsburg, Pa.” ↩︎
