1222 Reddour Street (House), Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, PA
Written data includes photocopies of location maps & floor plans.
Significance: This house is significant as a local example of a middle-class urban residence dating from the last quarter of the 19th century. It was erected eight or nine years following a devastating fire in 1874 that destroyed 199 buildings in the surrounding neighborhood. The other streets in the same block are dominated by a mix of row houses and commercial architecture, the latter generally concentrated along Federal Street, one block to the east of Reddour, and by West North Avenue, two blocks south of the house. The dwelling at 1222 Reddour Street stands out from the mixed urban background of rowhouses and stores in its block as what is probably the oldest surviving example of a modest, middle-class, free-standing residence in the block.
