    This home is beautiful in a perfect setting. The cupola is the only exterior feature that gives me 1865. I’m sure the owners know their home’s history but all of the woodwork on the interior looks like 1885-95. No matter the age of the home I would be happy calling it home.

      The front porch looks turn of the 20th Century to me, and it may have been part of a larger remodel around that time that included the interior, or perhaps the owners wanted to change with the trends and went through a series of updates in the first 30 or so years after initial construction. Remodeling was popular then as it is now, despite the apparent lack of HGTV at that time telling people what they should do.

        I too see a mid-19th century Italianate that underwent a major update towards the turn of the century. The results are an interesting mix but still combine to make a lovely home. Seems reasonably priced for a turn-key Bed & Breakfast operation. Ridgway is a beautiful town in north central Pennsylvania that retains a strong 19th century architectural flavor.

    It is a beautiful home in amazing condition. Perhaps it was extensively remodeled about the time Eric has indicated. Not much of 1865 left on the interior.

    I love the size of the bedrooms! And the woodwork! I wonder if the furniture goes with the house? If the next owners continue to run it as a B & B, that’ll be a great help.
    My great grandfather grew up in these parts, and had a variety of jobs as a young man. I wonder if he ever worked for the first owner of this house?

    Jerome Powell (1827-1897) was the first mayor of Ridgway. After his death, the house was updated with products of the local Hyde-Murphy Company, a large millwork supplier. Powell’s son Edgar built the fine house next door. This house was restored from apartments to the B&B about 20 years ago.

    The arch and oculus dormer is an interesting surviving feature of the original house. It may have lit the upper hall originally but doesn’t seem to have a function inside now. The exterior paint scheme is beautifully done imo and seems accurate to the early period.
