More About Isaac Bell House
The Isaac Bell House was designed in 1883 as the home of Isaac Bell, a wealthy cotton broker and investor. The home was purchased by the Preservation Society in 1996. It is one of the best remaining examples of shingle style architecture in the country.
The home is a mix of Old English and European architecture with colonial American and exotic details.
