This Classical Revival mansion built for Robert Carter Burwell is one of the few remaining residential works in which B. Henry Latrobe, father of the American architectural profession, played a role in design. Latrobe offered suggestions to Burwell for a staircase and piazza in 1811, a few months after workmen had laid the foundations. Hugh Mortimer Nelson added the porticoes and castellated east wing after 1842, as well as the Greek Revival-style interior trim based on designs published by the architect Minard Lefever. The late Harry Z. Isaacs renovated the mansion in 1989.
