Francis Jarvis House
220 W Greene St, Piqua, OH 45356
Susie and Wayne Pope
This residence was constructed in 1851 for Francis Jarvis, a tallow chandler who operated a soap and candle factory, and the residence remained in the Jarvis family until 1973. Typical of the Greek Revival Style brick houses built during this period, the Jarvis House has a later Italianate one story porch with a handsome balustrade balcony. The short axis of this 2-story, 3-bay brick residence faces the street and the entrance in the right bay has a massive natural wood frontispiece with two pilasters and sidelights. Extensive rear additions compliment the original portion and a matching frieze encircles the entire building.
