Notable Architectural Features:
this is another early brick buildings built around 1800. It is not quite as elaborate in its detail as the other three but its front door and porch are very good. The front door has many light sash above it and at either side. A very good porch is found at the front with a flat roof supported by square free standing columns. the cornice is of good classical moulding. directly above this is a large window with side lights and small pilasters as detail. it is really a Palladian window without the small fan above.

No picture on assessor sheet but notation of 4 interior chimneys and proximity to 66 and 85 seem to be a match
"This is a large brick house, painted white, with central hall, two chimneys, and ballroom on the second floor. In olden times, this fine home was a famous Inn. It is distinguished by a recessed entrance and door lights, all around. All early houses were taxed by their 'smokes', or chimneys."[Since the house has 4 chimneys, I'm not sure if this is a match although it is referred to as the Hewitt's house. -- M.A.Foote]
