Meason House

 
 

A premier example of an English Palladian villa in America, built in 1802. With its 7-part composition made of hand-cut limestone, remarkable forecourt, and balanced accessories, this house is the single most sophisticated building in the region from this early period. Meason built his Georgian mansion on the same land that Christopher Gist chose in 1753 as the first English Settlement west of the Alleghenies. Isaac Meason was a pioneer ironmaster and builder of one of the first successful rolling mills in 1817. His entrepreneurial skills link him directly to the creation of the iron industry. By far, the Meason Hoouse is the most elegant stone house in our reigion of the early period. This privately owned National Historic Landmark, visible from Rt. 119N, just south of Laurel Mall, is open for group tours by appointment only.
