Stites House



This home was built by the family of Benjamin Stites, a pioneer who along with 26 others founded the settlement of Columbia in 1788.  The home is brick with a stone foundation.  The front section of the home is a Federal style home built in 1835 by Hezekiah Stites Jr. but also features Greek style columns.  The rear section of the home was built by Hezekiah’s son Charles in 1867.  The home faces the Ohio River and is just up the hill from the original settlement of Columbia.  It is on the National Register of Historic Places.
