L. L. Dickman Houseby The Historic Tampa/Hillsborough County Preservation Board

The L. L.  Dickman House was erected in 1910 for the Ruskin founder and is one of the three major structures associated with the utopian community to survive. The generously proportioned house shows the stylistic influence of Charles A. F. Voysey, the English architect who popularized a revival of English, vernacular architecture. The sweeping gable roof, simple, uncluttered lines, ranges of casement windows and substantial massing are all hallmarks of Voysey's Arts and Crafts style. the house is a remarkably mature local expression of the Craftsman Bungalow mode considering its early construction date.
