National Historic Landmark -- Williamstown, West Virginia -- Wood County
The oldest residence in Williamstown, West Virginia, the Tomlinson Mansion was built in 1839 in a Federal style by Joseph Tomlinson III. His wife, Susannah McMahon, held many parties there, and the Tomlinson mansion was considered the social center of the upper Ohio Valley. Naturalist John James Audubon visited frequently and studied birds in the surrounding wilderness, now part of the Ohio River Islands National Wildlife Refuge. The home remains a private residence.
