John T. and Mary Turner House

The Turner House is an intact Neoclassical I-house in the African American community of Oberlin. The house was expanded by John T. Turner, Oberlin's major landowner, around 1900 from a three-room one-story house. While the I-house type is more often seen on agricultural landscapes, Oberlin was more rural in the late nineteenth century than it appears today. Turner, in fact, is listed as a farmer in Oberlin in the 1880 census. Private residence.

Date: ca. 1900
