Long Description:
(Front) This house, one of Georgetown's earliest, was built ca. 1737
by John and Mary Perry Cleland. Mrs. Cleland inherited the property
from her father John Perry, who had been granted a large tract in
1705 including the site of present-day Georgetown. This house is a
raised tidewater residence with its main entrance facing the Sampit
River. It features elements of the Georgian and Federal styles.
(Reverse) In 1753 the house was purchased by the Clelands' nephew
Archibald Baird. He made small additions to each end of the house and
relocated the main entrance to Front Street. A porch was added there
ca. 1780. Later prominent owners of the house included John Withers,
Jr., Francis Withers, Dr. Joseph Blythe, and Robert F. W. Allston.
