The John Calvin Owings House, Laurens, SC, c.1896. 787 W. Main St., Laurens, SC.
Architect: George F. Barber & Co.
Mr. Owings was part owner of Owings & Bobo, a mercantile firm, as well as Mayor of Laurens from 1916-1918. He commissioned George F. Barber & Co. to design this gorgeous example of Queen Anne Architecture in 1896.
The interior includes oak paneling, staircase, latticework, and 12 fireplaces with glazed tiles and mirrored overmantels.
Front of the house. Plum trees just about to flower.
Not all too common, the #facade is #serpentine. Those half round #dormers are clad in #copper.
Compared to the #queenanne style of the back, the front looks more #federal style.
Getting more nostalgic as I work to clean this place out.

Anne of Austria (22 September 1601 – 20 January 1666) was queen consort of France and Navarre, regent for her son, Louis XIV of France, and a Spanish and Portuguese Infanta by birth. During her regency (1643–1651), Cardinal Mazarin served as France’s chief minister. Accounts of French court life of her era emphasize her difficult marital relations with her husband Louis XIII, her closeness to her son Louis XIV, and her disapproval of her son’s marital infidelity to her niece Maria Theresa.
