Architectural Style: Colonial Revival
Year Built: c. 1906
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Columbus Ewalt

Columbus Ewalt, a very prominent lawyer in Mount Vernon in the early-20th century, built this home sometime around 1906.  Ewalt had been a county prosecutor for ten years before he decided to build this house.  Built in the Colonial Revival style, the home features a wide cornice detailed with dentils, thin pilasters at the corners, and three dormer windows projecting from a hip roof.  The center section of this house projects slightly from the rest of the building, and is further distinguished by a large 2nd-story Palladian window.  The front porch is supported by short, paired Ionic columns, and sidelights and transom surround the front door.
