Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

Ormiston Mansion (1798). “Erected by Edward Burd in 1798, Ormiston Mansion is a well preserved two-and-a-half story, late Georgian House built of red brick on a central-hall plan. The building’s American-bond brickwork gives way to Flemish bond on the front. The facade is also adorned with a simple Tuscan porch; a smaller pedimented version of this porch is attached to the rear of the house. Early interior features such as fireplaces, moldings, and a Scottish bake oven have survived. A widow’s walk tops the house. Federal-style dormer windows also adorn the cedar shake roof.” [source: http://www.ormistonmansion.org].
