Abstract
This architectural description of Gibraltar at 250 Pennsylvania Avenue, Wilmington, Delaware comprises a study of the four principle, non-service spaces of the first floor: the dining room, stair hall and hall, living room, and library. The brief discussion of the exterior at the end of this report is not intended as a thorough description, but is meant to relate the various rooms examined and the various building campaigns of the 1840s, c. 1915, and c. 1927 to the exterior of the house. The room designations used in this description follow those on the plans prepared by Homsey Architects of Wilmington The house's facade is actually more nearly oriented south, but the compass directions used throughout this description will correspond to those used in the National Register of Historic Places registration form for Gilbraltar, which describes the house as facing east.
