.

This slide presentation with Dr. Peter Barr, Professor of Art History at Siena Heights University, will look at Adrian’s J. H. Champion House, which is located at 523 S. Winter St.  The virtual presentation will feature both historic and recent photographs of the home’s exterior but will focus on local and national ideas associated with this home in the 1850s, including the shapes and styles of antebellum houses, marvelous new technologies, the projected end of slavery at the time and the surprising link between octagon cottages and bumpy skulls.
