Ward Home

Do we have any architecture geeks out there? How about anyone into the early 20th century Arts & Crafts movement in architecture? If you are, then you likely know about Ward Wellington Ward and his contributions to the Arts & Crafts movement in Central New York. These photos are of the Ziegler House in Syracuse built in 1915. Along with other Ward Wellington Ward-designed homes, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. Some unique features of the home include a garage which included a turntable so that vehicles would not have to be backed out of the driveway and a Mercer tile fireplace in the living room. As of the 1997 listing, the kitchen was one of very few original kitchens in a Ward-designed home. Sadly, the house sits vacant and is starting to show signs of decay.
