The firm offices occupy the former Peter’s Mansion,

circa 1860. James H. Peters built the house on several

acres of land he acquired from The Honorable Anthony

Reckless. The original property fronted on Broad Street

and included what is now Peters Place. The home was

built in the picturesque Italianate Style that was popular

at the time and contains several historic influences. The

scrollwork of the elaborate cornice brackets and the

porch decorations are American Victorian. A

Romanesque influence can be seen in the arched

entranceway, the round headed windows and the

arches on the porch. The floor plan is essentially

Georgian with a center hall, stairway and fourteen foot

ceilings. Selected areas of the interior construction and

décor have been preserved for view.
