The Bennett House Bed & Breakfast

This historic old home, known as the "Bennett Place" was build in 1889-1890. The prominent Cincinnati architect, Samuel E. des Jardins, was engaged to draw plans for the house of Queen Ann style with Romanesque detailing. It was the home of James and Sarah Clay (the daughter of notorious Caussius M. Clay, minister to Russia during the Lincoln administration) Bennett, thier five children, his two sisters, Belle Harris and Sue Bennett, and his mother Mrs. Elizabeth Chenault Bennett.

The two-and-one-half-story asymmetrical brick structure is finished by a high-hipped roof of slate with flared eaves and a crenelated roof comb. A two-story turret has a domed roof with flared, overhanging eaves. The double-doored central entrance is recessed under a singe-story-arched porch of impressive sixe containing a terra-cotta accented balcony. The Rommanesque-type arches in rusticated stones are repeated over the porch in the second-story balcony entrance and above stained glass fanlights on the first story. Stained glass can also be found in the double entrance doors and in some window sashes and transoms.
