629 Bradford House, Gothic Revival, ca 1850
This was the home of Mrs. Bradford’s School
“for young ladies and little girls” and later became the Bridge sisters’ school
for girls, a sectarian school operated by the nieces of Hobart’s President Hale.
Like the Irving House, number 731, the construction materials of the Bradford
House are especially significant, being long adobe blocks separated by wood
planks. Several other houses in Geneva are known to be of this unique
construction identifying steep gables and bargeboard of the Gothic style.
