Address: 604 North Main Street
Architectural Style: Greek Revival
Year Built: c. 1840s
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Henry B. Curtis

The home was probably built in the late-1840s, and was for many years owned by the Henry B. Curtis family.  The Curtis family had laid out the section of Mount Vernon which contains the home, and were responsible for much of its development.  It is probably that the home predates their addition by some ten years.  The home is an important part of the area’s cultural fabric.  The home is located near Lamartine Square, an area where several streets come together.

Built in the 1840s, the center section of this Greek Revival home is temple shaped with a well-proportioned pediment, 6-over-6 sash windows, and sidelights and transom surrounding the front door.  A portico with Doric columns may date from sometime after the home’s completion.  Two original wings extend from both sides, and also have pediments and 6-over-6 sash windows.
