Henry Metcalf House
50 West Harrison Street 1895
The sprawling Queen Anne-style house was constructed for prominent local landowner Henry F. Metcalf, a descendant of Lt. Asa Stevens, an American patriot killed during the Battle of Wyoming in 1778. The home features a dramatic wraparound porch with Ionic columns and a porte-cochère (predecessor of the car port). Metcalf and his wife, Pamelia, entertained frequently in a large interior ballroom and were collectors of antiques and other artifacts related to local history.
