The Wil C. Johnson home (c. 1899) was designed by John Calvin Stevens. This classic shingle style home sits high above the Kennebec River town of Hallowell, Maine. Note the turret and open, rounded porch which are drawn into the skin of the house by the unifying shingles. Both elements evolved from Queen Anne style. This design has a combination of hip and gable roofs.
