From Heritage Village, Dallas, Texas
Built only a few blocks from Dallas Heritage Village, at the corner of Akard and Beaumont in the fashionable Cedars neighborhood, this house was occupied for 100 years by the Daniel F. and Mary Sullivan family.
Typical of late 19th century neoclassical revival architecture, the house boasts fluted columns on the porch and a more symmetrical floor plan than the nearby Queen Anne-style George House. Because Mr. Sullivan was a plumbing and gas fitting contractor, this house also boasts an indoor bathroom and early gas lighting.
