The Aviary
330 Circle Drive

Constructed by George Bird, from the architectural firm of Proudfoot and Bird, the two-story residence was completed in 1887. Calling his home the "Aviary," Bird designed the structure with a mixture of Richardsonian Romanesque and the Queen Anne styles of architecture.

The bird motif in the balcony grillwork, and the ornamental iron work at the roof peak adds a distinctive appearance to this unique College Hill home. Note that the house is "named" on the exterior chimney. This cartouche, inscribed with the name Aviary, is a Proudfoot and Bird trademark.
