McEwen House, 4106 Gallatin Street, Hyattsville, Prince George's County, MD



Significance: The McEwan House is both a fine example of a Queen Anne-style suburban residence, and an identified example of pattern-book architecture. The plans were produced by R.W. Shoppell's nationally-known Cooperative Building Plan Association of New York. The house is representative of the architecture produced during the nationwide boom in suburban development that occurred during the late-19th and early-20th centuries.
