"The George Bacon residence has the distinction of having been designed by Henry Bacon. Henry Bacon, the builder's first cousin, is one of the most famous 20th century American architects, specifically noted for his work in the Classical Revival style. Bacon is best remembered for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., which he designed in 1911. The Bacon home reflects the architect's fascination with Greek and Roman temple design with the addition of Palladian overtones that some describe as 'Jeffersonian Classicism.' Jefferson's influence can be attributed to the architect's familiarity with eastern Virginia, where this style is much more common than in the Pacific Northwest."
