Built in the late 1830s as the home of Reverend Horace S. Pratt to the First Presbyterian Church which is across the street. The size and style of the building was unprecedented in the area. The Greek Revival style home is two stories with a raised basement. Ownership changed several times since its construction, but luckily it survived the Civil War when it was occupied by the Union Army. In 1965 the property was purchased by the City of St. Marys and has since been preserved as a museum by the Orange Hall Foundation. Each of the rooms are furnished as it would have looked when it was first completed. Visitors can take self-guided tours.
