Large Image of Frederick R. Hollander House

The Frederick R. Hollander House is a 1½-story, Craftsman Bungalow style structure built in 1926 on a concrete block foundation. The structure, designed by noted Joliet architect Herbert Cowell, is distinguished by a raised, full-width open front patio covered by an end-gable, front portico with Craftsman detailing, and two pairs of fluted, Tuscan columns. The open beam supports and applied board trim of the porch contribute to the Arts and Crafts influence seen in the porch design and the rear dormer. The structure has a centrally-placed six-light, beveled front door flanked by eight-light beveled sidelights. The front façade has paired, six-over-one double-hung windows on each side of the front door. A one-story sun porch is located on the south side of the house, and all windows on the structure include upper sashes in the multi-light Craftsman style and Bedford stone sills. A Bedford stone drip groove is also found on the structure. A contributing frame, one-car, detached garage is located to the south of the main structure. The structure is a Local Landmark and part of the Bungalow Thematic District.
