F. R. Morris Residence

1100 Ridgeway Street East
Constructed: 1910
Architect: R. E. Mason

Built in 1910 for F.R. Morris, a solicitor in Fort William, this house was constructed on a solid brick foundation and is an excellent example of the Queen Anne Revival style of architecture popular from 1880-1910. The Daily Times-Journal referred to the home as "one of the finest residences in the west...[and] modern and up-to-date in every respect." The house is constructed of red brick contrasted with cut stone, wood and a rubble stone coursed fountain. Some interesting architectural features include the front facade which appears to be somewhat asymmetrical and a roofline that seems quite irregular. There are three bays on the house. The central bay is flat topped, another has a rounded dormer, and the final bay has a pointed dormer. The facade has two Palladian windows on the first floor and a second floor bay window which suits the Queen Anne style. The house has two rounded verandas supported by classically inspired columns.
