A newspaper notice of 1905 mentions that noted architect Charles Colton (designer of City Hall) was drawing up plans for a house at the corner of Euclid and Maryland Avenues. The notice in the Post-Standard of September, 1905, describes what must surely be 800 Euclid, on the SE corner of with Maryland, as being designed by prominent city architect Charles Colton for James Barnes, secretary of the Trust and Deposit Company. The paper reported that

“it is to be a frame-building of attractive design, large porches and plate glass windows. A feature of the first floor is the living room with its large open fire place and two seats. The dining room is large and pleasantly located. Besides these two rooms on the first floor is a vestibule, hall, kitchen and pantry. The second floor has three bedrooms, bath, hall, storeroom and balcony. The general arrangement of both floors is remarkably homelike and comfortable. The site selected by Mr. Barnes is commanding and allows considerable space for lawns and gardens.”
