Abstract

Built in 1909, the house receives its name from Wallace F. Stovall. who bought it in 1915. The portico resembles that of the Taliaferro house in Tampa, but the columns are fluted and the fenestration and balcony differ. The pediment is deeper and of lower pitch. Landscaping and pagoda add to the picturesqueness. In the back, one expects slave quarters, but there are only a car park and service entrance. During recent repairs and painting, the columns received a dark grey undercoat. But they were not left that way. Now back in its original splendor, it is very photogenic; meretricious perhaps, but very photogenic. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This is a closer view looking from the northeast. Title supplied by cataloger. Description supplied by Sape A. Zylstra.
