The Front Elevation of the Simmons Home in Corinth, Mississippi

The Front Elevation of the Simmons Home in Corinth, Mississippi

This is the Simmons Home, or McCullar House, at 903 Fillmore Street. This brick house has a large side gable, with the roof extending over the front porch. The roof is supported, on the front elevation, by multiple three-centered arches; the boxed cornice, on the side elevation, is supported by multiple struts. There is a low, wide, shed dormer on the roof, with four casement windows. The roof lines, on the front elevation, shows exposed rafter tails. The overall impression is that the house was constructed in the Craftsman style; however, the shed dormer seems to indicate a Prairie School influence. The porte-cochère, to the left in this photograph, has a side gable.
