Andrew Scott House, 126 North Tenth Street, Richmond, Wayne County, IN

description

Summary

Significance: The Andrew F. Scott house was built in 1858, and is a good example of a mid-19th century house designed in the Italian Villa style. Distinguished by a central projecting pedimented pavilion on the symmetrical three-bay facade and an elaborate roof top cupola, the rectilinear main block is trimmed with a first-story verandah, a pedimented recessed main entry, and deep bracketed projecting eaves. The Scott house has been in the Scott family since its erection in 1858. It was built for Andrew F. Scott, a leading banker and Democrat in Wayne County during the mid-19th century. Scott was an incorporator and the first president of the Second National Bank of Richmond. His grandson, Francis A. MacNutt, lived with his grandparents as a child, and wrote a detailed and vivid description of the house as it appeared in the 19th century, which stands as one of the most valuable historical records of the house today. MacNutt became a diplomat with the U.S. Legation in Constantinople, and later a Papal Chamberlain in Poland. Three generations after the house was first occupied, it remains the home of members of the Scott family.
