Address: 211 North Gay Street
Architectural Style: Vernacular
Year Built: c. 1850
Architect/Builder: Clark L. Bennett
Original Owner: Clark L. Bennett

This house was likely built by Clark L. Bennett, a brick-maker who came to Mount Vernon in 1832, and who later became the owner of a livery stable. He supplied his feed and livery services on West Gambier Street, near Main.

The house is plain, except for corbelled brickwork under the eaves.  The house is on a smaller scale than that of the houses surrounding it, indicating that its builder was probably of rather modest means.  A brick addition to the rear was an early alteration, and a porch on the front of the building is of recent construction.
