Address: 401 East High Street
Architectural Style: Greek Revival
Year Built: c. 1850
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: George R. Martin

The home was built by George R. Martin, who was a local carpenter and joiner.  At about the time it was built, Martin opened a saw mill in Mount Vernon, which may have provided the cut lumber he used to build his house.  The house is one of the finest Greek Revival homes found in Mount Vernon.  Beautiful sidelights flank either side of the entrance.  Other elements distinctive to the Greek Revival style include the large pedimented cornice.  The Italianate porches were added sometime in the early-20th century.
