The MacNichol Estate House:


George P. MacNichol Jr., a glass industry executive, built this house in 1921 on an estate he called Orchard Bend just outside of town. Designed by Mills, Rhines, Bellman & Nordhoff of Toledo and built by the Carl Ruck Construction Company, it makes use of Queen Anne and Tudor details best appreciated by viewing all sides.

 Half-timbering is visible at the lower left in this picture. The river side has a combination of patterned brick, half-timbering and stucco and an interesting use of windows and dormers. Landscaping was done by A. D. Taylor of Cleveland, and the interior was designed by Hester Mills of New York City. MacNichol, whose grandfather was Edward Ford who founded what was to become Libbey-Owens-Ford Glass Company, came here from Wyandotte, Michigan. He grew up in Toledo but moved here when other prominent Old West End families chose East River Road for their permanent homes.
