Circa 1815 Roman Revival Doorway
Front doorway, circa 1815, typical of those created in Rhode Island during the Roman Revival period, 1790 to 1830. Its overall exterior width is 5’2” and its height is approximately 10’. The interior height is 7’9” from the top of finish floor to the top of the arched transom. The original eight-panel door, plank back with strap hinges is 34” in width and 6’3” in height. The transom, with fully molded mullions, retains its original glass.
Stored in a barn for the last 30 years, the doorway is in very good condition.

HISTORIC HOUSE OR BARN NEEDS RESCUE? A dedicated preservationist, William Gould Architectural Preservation, LLC has long worked to save historic houses and barns endangered by change and development. Unfortunately, such structures are being condemned at a faster rate than we can find homes for them.

Our online endangered house and barn form will help you to tell us what we need to know in order to advise you on the most effective course of action to save your important historic structure.
