The Robinson House (514 1st St. SE)

This two-story brick house is located on the south side of 1st Street, near the east end of what is the main east-west street through Mount Vernon.

The house is banked into the slope of a large lot that historically was associated with the owner/operators of the nearby brickyard and lime kiln also situated on the south side of 1st Street to the west of this house. The bricks used in the construction of this house were manufactured at this brick yard. The foundation is built of locally-quarried rough-cut limestone blocks and slabs of varying sizes and shapes.
