the benjamin pomeroy carriage barn, circa 1869

 The Southport "Chronicle" of May 1868 reported that "Mrs. Benjamin Pomeroy is about to erect a large and elegant dwelling near the site of the present one." On May 15, 1869 the "Chronicle" announced that "Mrs. Benjamin Pomeroy's new dwelling will soon be completed, and will be one of the finest, if not the, finest, residence in the village." Noting the residence's distinctive beauty, the "Chronicle" recorded on August 1, 1869 the completion of Mrs. Pomeroy's new home. "The elegant residence of Mrs. Benjamin Pomeroy, now finished and occupied by her, is an ornament to the street . . . and a great credit to the builders, Messrs. Jelliff & Northrop . . . No need to go abroad for our builders - we have those that excelled, at home." The original Pomeroy Carriage Barn- now a separate residence and property at 275 Center Street- has also been cited as  an example of significant period architecture within Southport's Historic District
