41. William Armstrong House, Biddle 2234, Queen Anne, Built 1898, Edward J. Harding
Residence of a prominent Wyandotte pioneer and businessmen, this house has architectural significance as the work of active Wyandotte architect Edward J. Harding who designed many residential buildings at the turn of the 20th century.

This 1898 Queen Anne is asymmetrical in plan covered with clapboard and shingles, later replaced by asbestos siding. A veranda across the front is supported by Tuscan columns on paneled pedestals. Dentils and modillion bands decorate the porch and main cornice.

An unusual feature is the house’s paneled treatment with an oval fanlight in the center of the wall between the 2nd story front windows and beneath the gable.
