An Era When Craftsmen Were Also Artists

Certainly not many late 19th century Annapolis residences exude such a sense of craftsmanship or the executed vision of its architect as does today’s featured Historic District house. Built for US Naval Academy bandmaster and composer Charles Zimmerman in the mid 1890’s, the house is what I consider to be one of the most exquisite examples of Queen Anne style architecture in the City.

Even on a cloudy Summer morning the attention to detail that was used in its construction is much in evidence from the slate covered gable and corner conical turret roofs, all sided in cove wood shingles, to the intricate millwork adorning the metal shed roof front porch to the multitude of window design styles. All of those afore mentioned architectural elements, coupled with the seemingly Victorian period exterior colors that currently cover Professor Zimmerman’s house, are reminiscent of an era when style, detail and craftsmanship were more of the norm than the exception.

Checkout Professor Zimmerman’s house one day and see for yourself,
