The first building on this site was erected in 1793 and served as a lodgeroom, schoolroom, and theater. The building was rebuilt in 1858. The Phoenix Lodge is one of the oldest in the state still in existence and was visited by Marquis de Lafayette in 1825. This structure is a good example of Greek Revival architecture.
