The Isaac Glaspell House is located on the east side of Davenport, Iowa, United States. It has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1983.[1] Isaac Glaspell was a local grocer in the 1870s and 1880s and had this Greek Revival house built during that time.[2] It is a two-story structure that features a front gable, three bay façade, with a single bay side wing. The exterior is composed of brick with stone and wood trims. The house is a vernacular form of the Greek Revival style found in Davenport.[2] The notable details on this house are the bracketed eaves and the flat arch window heads that are topped by keystone brick hoods. The porch is a later addition from around the turn of the 20th-century and it may have replaced an earlier porch. The house sits on a raised lot.
