15 • Lawn Area

The lawn between P.S. 28 and the Third County Courthouse is now used for visitor picnicking and outdoor concerts at Historic Richmond Town. But in earlier years, a house stood here, at 284 Center Street.

The house was erected in 1837 as part of Henry I. Seaman’s development of the village, and a barn was constructed on the property by 1845. The owners of the house included members of the Hall, Marsh, Lytle, Cole, Siemer, and Flake families. A photo of the site, taken between 1900 and 1910, shows a large grape arbor in the backyard behind the house. In 1959 the house was sold to St. Andrew’s Church and moved to an area behind the church to be used as a parsonage. It still stands in that location as part of the property of St. Andrew’s Church.
