(Robertson House) This home is significant as one of the oldest remaining antebellum homes in the Longtown area of Fairfield County. Built in 1822, the one and one-half story clapboard frame house rests on a brick foundation. The house has a side gabled roof and two outside chimneys on each end. A one-story hipped roof covers the front porch and is supported by six double capped square columns which have separate foundation piers standing free of the porch (a “rain porch”). There are matching details in the banisters around the porch, roof deck, and step railings. An extra large central dormer contains a door with three-paneled sidelights. Both front entrances are surrounded by an unusual triangular architrave. There are wide central halls on each floor. The interior has hand-carved mantels, wainscoting, and cornices. The house has a one-story addition and to the left of the house is the old two-room brick kitchen with large open fireplaces, ovens and warmers. Listed in the National Register April 13, 1972.
