Description

This building was built for investment income as a wedding present for Jerothmul B. Barnaby’s daughter and his son-in-law, after whom it is named. The tower feature on this downtown building is also employed in Nickerson’s Carr House built in 1885. Both buildings are prime examples of Queen Anne Style architecture in Providence. Construction of a federal office building is still in progress in this photograph.
