Description
... this house began as a project in 1887 for William Edward Dorsheimer (1832-1888), who lived in an H.H. Richardson-designed house, which he had commissioned in the late 1860s. Dorsheimer had worked closely with both Richardson and Frederick Law Olmsted .... Richardson’s death in 1886 brought this commission to Hunt, to whom Dorsheimer specified a Romanesque design, an otherwise anomaly in Hunt’s work. Hunt was still in the project’s design phase when Dorsheimer himself died. By December of 1890, English-born yachtsman Joseph R. Busk had assumed the commission for the house with Hunt. -- http://wikimapia.org/5074382/Wrentham-House-Indian-Spring
