Joseph Wilson commissioned Frank F. Parsons to design and build this residence in Wichita’s College Hill neighborhood. The Wilson family owned the house until 1945, when they sold it to William C. and Marie Boyle. The house features a blend of architectural styles including Neoclassical and Colonial Revival, which were popular in the United States from approximately 1890 through 1955. The residence is two-and-a-half stories and features a tan brick exterior with corners accented by raised blond brick quoining. The roof is hipped with gabled dormers on the front and rear elevations. Window and door lintels are cast stone with Greek key and gutta ornamentation. The house was nominated as part of the “Residential Resources of Wichita” multiple property submission for its local significance in the area of architecture.
