Inscription. The Hermitage is a Mid-Nineteenth Century Gothic Revival cottage style villa built on the site of an earlier house. The architect William Ranlett was commissioned in 1847 to renovate the original Colonial-style building by adding a new wing and ornamental trim. The gate in the foreground of this photograph (circa 1890) had disintegrated and has been carefully reproduced.
