Modern Prairie; Alonzo Ward
A present-day peek inside the historic home of Alonzo Ward.
This Prairiestyle dwelling, home to Hayley Hilton and Trevor Lien, was originally built in 1909. Located in the Highlands Historic District on North Main, it was designed by architect Franklin Ellerbe, for Alonzo L. Ward, Sr. (founder of the Alonzo Ward Hotel). The exterior’s first story is intricately decorated with tile and brick and the second story is stucco. Two brick chimneys graze the skyline above, and contribute to the enduring look of yesteryear. A love for lasting value and meticulous attention to detail resonates within the interior walls. Original oak woodwork frames elegant rooms that hold true to both form and function. Updates are modern, yet classic, maintaining the integrity and timeless beauty of this relic of Aberdeen history.
