This elegant Greek Revival-style house features a colonnade of Doric columns and was built ca. 1835 for
William Mott II, whose small empire of mills, stores, and a furniture factory operated below the house along the banks of Six Mile Creek until the late 1850s. Mott’s sawmill may have provided much of the abundant millwork incorporated throughout the house, which was built in the most fashionable style of the time. The cupola offers a bird’s-eye view of Six Mile Creek, which presumably allowed Mott to view activities in his businesses lining the creek.
