Edward Hazlett House, 823 Main Street, Wheeling, Ohio County, WV



Significance: Built by Henry K. List and his wife Sarah, wealthy citizens of Wheeling, for their daughter, Jessie L. Hazlett, the Hazlett House represents one of the residential building achievements of 1891. That year, Wheeling's commercial and residential building operations were considered to be unprecedented in scope, demonstrating that "progress is the watchword of the community." The three-story building is situated between the residences of Henry K. List at 827 Main and the home of John K. List, Jessie's brother, at 821 Main Street. The Queen Anne style structure is distinguished by a conspicuous octagonal tower with two oval windows, seven bays including a prominent two-story rounded bay in the front, and a decorative slate shingle roof. The elaborate interior detailing includes numerous wood mantles with decorative glazed tiles; stained and beveled glass windows; spindlework and hardwood floors with inlaid patterns. The red brick exterior suggests that the architects were influenced by Romanesque style design, which was also popular in the late nineteenth century.
