Tour The Sedgwick House
The History of The Sedgwick House
The earliest record of The Sedgwick House dates all the way back to 1830. It was built by and belonged to Charles Sedgwick who was remembered as “most prominent in business” in Hunter. What business we do not know. He was elected a Justice of the Peace in 1833.
The original building was a salt box who’s style was a transition between the Federalist style of the early 1800’s and the Greek revival from 1820-1860.*
Over the years the house served as a meeting hall and a church but it was mostly home to large families. The house did not reach its final size until 1920 and was wired for electricity and had plumbing and appliances installed at that time.
In 1934 the house was purchased by Frieda Wittman. She converted it into a boarding house and owned it for 40 years. She was known as a colorful local character. In 1987 William Maley purchased the building and began the restoration and converted it to a bed & breakfast. The entire house was gutted and rebuilt. Care was taken to maintain the original style and feel of the house. The results speak for themselves. It just feels like an authentic country inn.
The Sedgwick House is Under New Ownership
My name is Cris and I recently purchased The Sedgwick House. My wife and I recently were blessed with a baby boy and I wanted to raise him in a rural setting. We moved to Hunter last year and when I found out The Sedgwick House was available I knew this was the life for me.
I will greet you with a smile, help you find all the activities you want and serve you a hearty hot country breakfast to start your day.
