- Upscale 2x5482x7680
Significance: The building is significant as one of the best works of Henry Howard, the architect who later designed the more famous Belle Grove Plantation, in which he used the same Greek Corinthian order. ... Significant also is the manner in which apparently all of the owners cared for the property. According to Curtis, the building "has never been so circumstanced as to suffer neglect or deterioration. In fact, its owners have always been people of taste who knew how to value its beauty; and unlike the majority it has been carefully treasured and only such improvements have been undertaken as would enhance its charm."
