584 Schermerhorn House, Jeffersonian, 1827
This house was built in the same year and style
as its neighbor to the north for Henry V.R. Schermerhorn. The two homes reflect
the Southern influence in Geneva. Also known as Roman Classicism, the
Jeffersonian style is generally restricted to the South where it was conceived
under the hand of Thomas Jefferson. In this house on July 24, 1839, a public
reception was given for Henry Clay.
