George W. Robinson House
1873. 206 Elm St.

This large Stick Style house was in the Robinson family for eighty-five years, from 1873 to 1958. The decorative wooden detailing of the porch and the fanlike ornament above the porch and on the third floor gable end are particularly attractive. Among the largest houses in Tionesta, it is open to the public as the Forest County Historical Society.
