Havens House

404 West Main Street

The Havens House was built in 1820. The design of the house was based on the Havens' family ancestral home, "Heartsease" at Southold, Long Island. The Havens, who were shipping merchants, patterned the house after West Indies-style homes observed on their trade routes. Two significant Flemish bond brick outbuildings (smokehouse & kitchen), located behind the house, are reminders that the grounds of nearly every house during the 19th Century contained structures necessary for cooking, curing, storage, and housing of servants. During the War Between the States, this home was used as a prison.
