|Address:||400 East High Street|
|Architectural Style:||Colonial Revival|
|Year Built:||c. 1906|
|Original Owner:||Columbus Ewalt|
Columbus Ewalt, a very prominent lawyer in Mount Vernon in the early-20th century, built this home sometime around 1906. Ewalt had been a county prosecutor for ten years before he decided to build this house. Built in the Colonial Revival style, the home features a wide cornice detailed with dentils, thin pilasters at the corners, and three dormer windows projecting from a hip roof. The center section of this house projects slightly from the rest of the building, and is further distinguished by a large 2nd-story Palladian window. The front porch is supported by short, paired Ionic columns, and sidelights and transom surround the front door.
