Title

100 East State Street, Hugh Jones House

Creator

Carnahan, Paul

Description

For much of Montpelier’s history this home has had a commanding view of Montpelier from a ridge on “Seminary Hill” accessed by East State Street. Successful farmer and land owner Morton Marvin purchased it from carriage maker and horse breeder F. C. Gilman in 1881. Marvin proceeded to build terraces in front of the house and remodel it in the French Second Empire style, including a mansard roof. Barre granite manufacturer Hugh J. M. Jones purchased the home from Marvin in 1898. He tore it down in 1907 and built the brick Classical Revival house that stands on the site today.
