Description from National Register of Historic Places:

Built in 1891 for prominent Henderson businessman John O’Byrne, the property is a two-story, brick, asymmetrically composed, hip-roofed residence with a high degree of overall integrity. The residence borrows material and design elements from several Victorian styles with a resulting ecclectic solution. From the Italianate comes asymmetrical massing, an almost-flat, hip roof; deep, bracketed cornice with elaborate corner wall brackets; and narrow sash windows. Borrowings from the Stick Style appear in the finely-detailed diagonal bracing of the front half-porch. Queen Anne vestiges appear in double, projecting, polygonal bays on each of the three main facades, and in the elaborate qlass, door and trim work found on both interior and exterior elevations.

The interior features oak woodwork including an elaborate stair with carved newel, turned spindles and paneled wainscott. Three oak mantles have mirrored breakfronts and elaborately carved Queen Anne motifs. Windows and doors are trimmed with molded casings with bullseye corner blocks. Decorative wrought iron porch posts, railing and stair railing on the rear porch are the only changes to the original exterior.

This striking brick Italianate was built in 1891 for John O’Byrne and has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places and features a bronze plaque on the front porch. Featuring intricate corbels, limestone lintels above the windows, numerous leaded and stained glass windows as well as Victorian gingerbread porch trim, this marvelous house has it all!
