History

Hugh R. Clyde settled in Canton Township in 1825, [2] and in 1826 married Eliza Huston. [3] Hugh R. Clyde died in 1831, and his wife Eliza Huston Clyde died in 1838, when their property went to their son, Thomas. The house was probably built by Thomas Clyde c.1845 as the taxes jumped from $3.14 in 1844 to $8.02 in 1845. Thomas Clyde married Isabella Moore on August 22, 1850, hence "Thomas and Isabella Moore Clyde" House. [4] The Clyde family occupied the house until 1858, when it was purchased by John Huston II, Eliza's nephew. [5] In 1924, the house was purchased by William and Jennie Houk, who lived in it while constructing a new brick house on the property. When their new house was finished, they moved the Clyde House across the street. [5]

Description

The Thomas Clyde House is a 1 12-story clapboard upright and wing Greek Revival house on a concrete foundation faced with rock. The two wings form an unusual asymmetric facade. The east wing is positioned flush with the main upright section; the west is recessed to allow for a front porch; a second porch fronts the upright section. The two porches have thick square posts with pierced-work brackets between them. [6] Two front entrances are in the main upright section and the east wing; the windows are six-over-six. The house has ramped door and window surrounds. The roof is covered with asphalt shingles, and the classic cornice below features returns at the gabled ends. This house is significant because the asymmetric upright and wing is an unusual subtype more frequently seen in the northeastern states, and rarely in Michigan. [6]

Upright and Wing, also referred to as Temple and Wing or Gable Front and Wing, is a residential architectural style found in American vernacular architecture. It was popular from the mid- to late 19th century and is typified by a gable ended "upright" section, usually two stories, and a one-story ell or "wing" section.

Greek Revival architecture architectural movement of the late 18th and early 19th centuries

The Greek Revival was an architectural movement of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, predominantly in Northern Europe and the United States. It revived the style of ancient Greek architecture, in particular the Greek temple, with varying degrees of thoroughness and consistency. A product of Hellenism, it may be looked upon as the last phase in the development of Neoclassical architecture, which had for long mainly drawn from Roman architecture. The term was first used by Charles Robert Cockerell in a lecture he gave as Professor of Architecture to the Royal Academy of Arts, London in 1842.
