Stone Mansion House (Ebenezer Jackson Tavern)

-A A +A
Ebenezer Jackson Tavern
1833. 215 4th Ave.

This house is stylistically rooted in Pennsylvania rather than in the western New York and Ohio's Western Reserve Greek Revival tradition that is common to many other Warren houses of the period. It is the classic Pennsylvania five-bay stone house found in great numbers in the southwestern counties. This two-story house, one of the earliest buildings in Warren, was built as an inn, evident by its size and its location adjacent to the planned town square. The golden, smooth-faced sandstone is pierced by rows of double-sash windows that are slightly larger on the first story than on the second. Distinctive dormer windows punctuate the gable roof. In addition to its role as an inn, the building has served a variety of functions over the years, including a bank and a private club.
