Bond-Meux-Livingston House

611 W. Main St.

Robert Bond built this home for his wife in 1911. The original structure on the property was moved two lots west by mules and logs to accommodate the new bungalow structure. This house features massive stone columns, a stone fireplace, a side porte-cochere and a shed dormer with five transom-topped windows. There is also a dumb waiter with mother-of-pearl buttons to summon the servants. The residence has a grand center staircase and large spacious rooms with 12-foot ceilings. Dr. George Whitfield Meux purchased the house in 1929 after Robert Bond lost money the stock market crash. Following Meux’s death in 1954, his daughter Anne and her husband Wilson Livingston inherited the house.
