Various dates. Echo Point Circle

Echo Point, a secluded circular cul-de-sac close to National Road, contains a handsome handful of large houses that members of the Hazlett family and their connections built. The cul-de-sac encircles an oval lawn that serves as a communal front yard. Number 6, the earliest house, is a formal wood-frame composition with wings added later to the side and rear. Number 4 is a formidable, shingled Queen Anne mansion with a rounded tower covered with a conical roof and surrounded by a round, two-story porch. Its size and expansive porches make the house appear more like a Victorian-era summer hotel than a private residence.
