|Title||George Douglass and His Mansion|
A six-page type-written history of George Douglass and his business influence in the area of current day Douglassville, PA, as well as a description of his political and business success. Text also contains various descriptions of elements of the George Douglass House, including the full-perimeter [“encircling”] plastered cove cornice, a refinement emanating from late 17th century “Baroque” English influences. This form of eaves transition appeared in Philadelphia in the very early 18th century, and within the next half-century migrated to Germantown, Chester and Montgomery counties, and eventually arose on more remote Germanic houses such as the Keim house in Berks County [see Archive record KHPH9 and the accompanying images and Footnotes].
