Mothershead and Fitton

The Indianapolis firm of Mothershead and Fitton designed two homes in Washington Park. Owen Mothershead was in charge of engineering and construction while Harry Fitton took care of the design. Known for their outstanding apartment design they were also involved in residential design. The earlier home at 4170 Pennsylvania is a brick and stone Arts and Craftsinspired home built in 1920. The 1924 Hilgemeir home at 4266 Pennsylvania is an Italian Renaissance-inspired house. The contract announcement in the Indiana Construction Recorder noted its value at $30,000. The successful partnership came to an abrupt end at Fitton’s untimely death in 1931.
