Description:
  • America House located at 147 Main Street and built in 1825 was originally called Blunt House. In 1832 Samuel F. Smith, a member of the class of 1834 of the Seminary wrote "America" and set the words to a German tune he had been translating for Lowell Mason, an instructor of his. It was also called the Clark House from 1908 to 1919. This view was taken as the trolley tracks were being laid and the road and driveway are still to be repaired.
