The Samuel MacKenzie Elliott House is said to be one of more than twenty-two houses designed by Dr. Elliott, an eye surgeon of wide repute and an enthusiastic amateur architect. The house was built around 1850 in a country version of the Gothic Revival. Constructed of locally quarried random stone with twenty-three inch walls, the house has eight rooms, an attic, and a cellar. This house was reputedly part of the Underground Railroad, and the cellar was fitted with a special fireplace for cooking.

“I don’t know what the City would be without HDC. [They] testified before LPC time after time and helped us focus on the right issues. We would not be an historic district without HDC! ”

“Use HDC as a resource because they know what they are doing and can offer advice on how to go about creating a district from every front: architectural, political, LPC, and the media. I had floundered prior to my involvement with this invaluable organization.”

“HDC provided guidance and shared information during that process—we knew which Council members were going one way or another and we changed a few minds. I don’t think NoHo would have had as cohesive a district had it not been for HDC’s aid.”

“I remember Richard saying at a meeting, we have someone here from HDC, Nadezhda Williams, Director of Preservation and Research, to help us. She said to us, ‘You are not the only ones going through this.’ HDC included us in an enormous community”
