Tyler-Jones House

-A A +A
1840. Main St. (PA 547)

While the neighboring Congregational church ( SQ3) illustrates New England's cultural influence on Harford's first generation, the Tyler-Jones House shows the influence of New York on the village's second generation. Joab Tyler, son of one of Harford's founders, adopted a type of domestic Greek Revival favored by upstate New Yorkers: a central two-story block with a tetrastyle Greek Ionic portico and flanked by short one-story wings. Henry Jones, a Harford storekeeper, acquired the house in 1865; his son, Edward E. “Good Roads” Jones, was a state legislator in the early twentieth century.
