George W. Eckhart House, 810 Main Street, Wheeling, Ohio, WV. Photo shows view of west (front) elevation
In 1891, George W. Eckhart Jr., a wealthy Wheeling banker, built his home in one of the prominent, upper-class neighborhoods, commonly referred to as "Old Town of Wheeling." Along with the Hazlett House and John K. List Houses under construction across the street at 823 and 821 Main Street, the Eckhart House was considered by the "Wheeling Daily Intelligencer" of October 29, 1891 to be one of the residential building achievements of the year, an example of the "tasteful architecture" that "have thoroughly impressed everybody who gets about over town much." The three-story, red brick townhouse is a fine example of a Queen Anne building, the dominant style of domestic building in the late-nineteenth century. It has a Romanesque, arched brick porch that was an early twentieth century addition to the original 1891 design. The facade features a distinctive oriel window with a painted, pressed metal pendant at the bottom; two impressive stained-glass windows; corbeled wood and painted pressed tin cornices; painted, pressed tin finials; corbeled brick and terra cotta inserts; and decorative hexagonal-shaped slate shingles of various shades of slate on the mansard. The elaborate interior detailing includes numerous wood mantles with decorative carvings and glazed tiles surrounds and hearths; ornamental fretwork and spindlework; lincrusta wainscoting; and hardwood floors with inlaid patterns.
