Description: Shown here is a photograph of the front and west side of a multi-story Queen Anne-style, cement block house located at 416 NW 6th Street in Mineral Wells, Texas. It has many architectural features displaying sub-types including Patterned Masonry and Free Classic, such as the shaped parapets on the tower, and on the gables (Patterned Masonry), as well as the Palladian window on the tower (Free Classic). The rectangular tower is unusual. Although is is not obvious in this photograph, there are more than the normal number of chimneys. The house is said to have a fireplace in each room--each one of which was unique. The fireplaces are said to have been faced with Italian marble.
