Samuel Sloan

SAMUEL SLOAN


Samuel Sloan (March 7, 1815 – July 19, 1884) was a Philadelphia-based architect and best-selling author of architecture books in the mid-19th century. He specialized in Italianate villas and country houses, churches, and institutional buildings. His most famous building—the octagonal mansion "Longwood" in Natchez, Mississippi—is unfinished; construction was abandoned during the American Civil War.

Notice, in the two preceding posts, that the Venango County Courthouse and Clinton County Courthouse are almost identical mirror images of each other.

Sheriff's House and Jail (1858)

The jail was torn down, but doors to nowhere indicate where the jail used to be

Now the Visitor's Center for First State National Historic Park

West Presbyterian Church (1871; rebuilt 1997)
Wilmington, DE

The rebuilding, after a fire, is not adherent to Sloan's original plan.

Question: were the mid-to-late 19th century Italianate schools such as this one also Sloan's work?

Maybe. Sloan did a lot of work in Philadelphia. But the Italianate style was popular, and he wasn't the only one in this country that designed in that style.

I didn't see anything for Master Street or 17th Street in Philadelphia from this list of Sloan's works.
