Austin Hewitt House

Austin Hewitt House

The most noticable feature of this Greek Revival mansion is the monumental pedimented portico. The central original part of the building was built in the 1830s as a female academy. Later, it was turned into a private residence and the portico was added. When Austin Hewitt died in 1921, he willed his estate to become a ladies retirement home, and was then enlarged.

Listed on the National Register of historic places.
