53 HARRISON STREET
Designed in the Second Empire style for Henry Warth, this house has a steeply pitched slate mansard roof and polychrome striped brickwork. Note the terra-cotta medallion on the building’s west façade. This is the only house on the street with a registered architect. In addition to that distinction, this graceful house stands out for its height (three stories plus a basement level) and that there are no houses abutting it on either side, lending a stately air to its presence on the street. Owner Henry Warth was the brewmaster of the local Rubsam & Horhmann Brewery in Stapleton. His father, Albin Warth, was an inventor who held over 150 patents.
