Everett Mansion/ Southern
In 1911, Edward Everett, known as the glass and bottle magnate of the
American Industrial Revolution, commissioned architect George Totten and
30 stonemasons from Italy to build the limestone Main House patterned
after the 14th Century English/Norman feudal mansions. Working seven days
a week, ten hour days, the exterior was completed in six months. The cobblestone
courtyard features the porte cochere where carriages dropped
visitors opposite a stone cascade which has recently been renovated(1998).
