Although this home is not open to the public, I'm including it in my tips because it's an example of the late Greek Revival style of architecture. It's located in a quiet section of Jefferson near a park and historic Episcopal church.
Cast iron balasters are an element of this design, which is reflected in this home more than any other in the town of Jefferson.
I was surprised to read that there are more than 100 state and nationally recognized historic structures in and around Jefferson. The Schluter home is one of those noted.
This striking two story home was built in 1856 by F. A. Schluter, a prominent businessman in the area and one of the first settlers to this region. This part of town was known for its affluence.
