Thomas Osborne House, 1907
Architect: C.
B. Lindsey, Lexington, KY

Thomas J. Osborne was the College Treasurer, taught farming and also served for a while at the end of the nineteenth century as Secretary to the Prudential Committee. This running bond brick and gambrel roofed house served as his home on the north side of Prospect Street. It has a full front porch, a bay window on the east which runs to the second floor and nestles into the gambrel shingled roof. A chimney rises from the center of the gambrel roof. The house was renovated to be used as a College rental property in 1928 and continues to serve as a rental unit (Berea Citizen, July 19, 1928).
