                History of the Property

                An article from The Summit Record - Saturday, February 14, 1891

                A HANDSOME STRUCTURE

                One of the handsomest houses built in Summit recently, is the one on Summit Avenue which has just been finished for Mr. David F. O’Rourke and now occupied by Mr. D. Simmons Howe.  Carpenters have been at work on the building for the past three months, and the work was all done under the supervision of Mr. O’Rourke.  The building was not completed until Tuesday and on Thursday Mr. Howe and his family moved in.

                The cottage is of Queen Anne style, facing the west and is about 42x48 feet.  A large piazza runs along the front and south end of the house.  The entrance from this piazza opens to the main hallway 16 feet in length and 14 feet in width.  The parlor 14x18 opens to the left of the hallway on the north side.  The parlor is finished very handsomely in California redwood.  Connected with the parlor by a sliding door is the dinning room 18x20 on the east side of the house.  This room is finished in oak and over the open fireplace is heave oak mantle of colonial style.  A large bay window is built on the north side of the room.  The kitchen and pantry open off the dining room and they are both very large rooms.  All of the rooms on the first floor have a heavy oak cornice and the floors are made of comb-grained pine with a black walnut bordering. On the second floor there are four large bedrooms and a handsomely finished bathroom.  Each bedroom contains two closets.  The third floor has four bedrooms also.  On the north-west corner of the house there is a tower 48 feet high.  The main hallway and all of the rooms on the first floor even to the kitchen have a wainscoting of oak six feet high and the ceilings on the first and second floor are finished with a terra cotta and bronze coloring – a very pretty combination.  The hallway on the second floor opens on a long balcony 12x20 on the south side of the house.  All of the rooms on the first and second floor have broad open fireplaces besides being provided with heat from the furnace.  The rooms have also a patent ventilators set in the wall above the registers.  Electric bells connect every room in the house with the kitchen.  The staircase is a very handsome one, built entirely of oak.
