Olde Towne East Mansion

Chris saw this from a street away; it's at the end of the street with the other houses.

    Since Agfa color film is no more, I've had to switch to Kodak's Portra and Ultra series pro films. You may want to research at kodak.com and see which would look best for you.

    All the latest Titanic shots were made on 4 of the various Portra films (160NC 160VC 400NC 400VC), and I can't tell which is which just by looking. (which I think is the point of them).

    Hey what's the street address for this handsome home?
  • Dania Hurley 7y

    Aw, thanks, Sarah & Bob!

    Not sure Erin - sorry. :(

    Wow, that brickwork is gorgeous. The lighting is perfect, too. :)
  • Ellie 7y

    Oooh, talk about opulence! The pitch of that roof is amazing, to mention just one detail.
  • Dania Hurley 7y

    I know, how do you pick just one?

    Oh, Liberty, you are too kind. :)

    This house is on Bryden Road down near to the Bexley end. It's amazing: probably my favorite in Columbus. There is a carriage house in back that is also quite a structure. The cast iron fence is fantastic. A real showplace that needs some TLC.
  • Dania Hurley 7y

    Ah, thank you for the street name! Yes, that fence is something else. This house is rare indeed, and I'll have to walk past sometime to see the carriage house. I wonder whose it used it be.

    Now you're getting around my neighborhood, Dania_H, -- not that we live in anything resembling this great house! This house was built for Charles Frederick and Katharine Emrich Meyers. He started the United States Carriage Company specializing in hearses (of the horse-drawn variety). The house was patterned after a castle in his homeland of Germany. This is from Historic Homes of Olde Towne by Lea Ann Sterling -- if you're interested, purchasing the book supports the neighborhood association (click on upper right corner of www.oldetowne.org ).

    Thank you for all the great information! I wondered of some "first family" of Columbus, and maybe which one, built it. It's gorgeous.
