Description 

Built in 1802 for ironmaster Isaac Meason, this substantial 2 1/2 story ashlar sandstone house is the most sophisticated English Palladian villa-type building in the region from this early period. Meason brough craftsman and architect Adam Wilson from England to design and build his house which stands unaltered with its original plan and details intact. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, June 21, 1990
