"The Romantic tradition that brought into being evocative landscape such as that of Forest Lawn was also responsible for the Gothic Revival, an architectural movement that was well-represented on Delaware Avenue . In 1848 Richard Upjohn was invited to Buffalo to design St. Paul's Episcopal Church, a building he is said to have regarded as his best work. As a result of his work at St. Paul's, the famous New York architect was asked by George B. Webster, a local insurance agent and one of the members of the vestry, to design a house for him on Delaware Avenue. The brick villa (located on the southwest corner of Delaware and Utica) was a fine example of Gothic Revival domestic architecture that included decorative verge boards and tall gables." - The Grand American Avenue 1850-1920, "Delaware Avenue," by Francis R. Kowsky, p. 41
