David M. Mayer House
The David M. Mayer House is an extraordinary example of the Italianate style mansionette in residential architecture, including the box-with-cupola main block, elaborately detailed cupola, hooded windows, deep bracketed eaves, asymmetrical porches and rounded window arches.
In 2017, the House underwent an extensive exterior renovation and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The preservation of the structure was made possible with the support of the Historic Preservation Trust of Lancaster County, Preservation Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, and the National Park Service.
