Description

The Western House

The Michigan Preservation website tells us, The Western House is a three-story, Italianate, brick structure which retains many original detailings. A simple cornice still graces the former hotel, the tallest building in the surrounding streetscape of downtown Brighton. The remarkable building continues to display the original arrangement of doors and windows on the public facades. Simple brick pilasters accentuate the corners and frame the central bay of the five bay front. A wide brick frieze and bracketed metal cornice crown the building. The doors and windows possess the characteristic curves of the commercial Italianate style. The first floor features fully arched windows and fanlights above the doors. A belt course separates the first and second floors on the more elaborate sides.

The high degree of architectural integrity still present in the Western House constitutes an important part of the brick Italianate structure’s significance. Another central component is the building’s ability to illustrate a major period of expansion for the City of Brighton. The railroad’s arrival at a critical point in 1871 precipitated a time of prosperity and building for both the community and the state that was cut short by the economic reversals which began in 1873.
