The North Front of The Wigwam
This is the only surviving elevation of Bridgman's original design. All access to the house was at this time from this side. Originally there was access at the first floor level by sweeping carriage ramps through a porte-cochere. At this time the main entrance was where the mayor's parlour is now. On the left is the octagonal glass palm house. It was about 70ft wide by 60ft high constructed of cast iron and glass. It was built around 1877.
