Description:

This grand house was built in 1835 for Mr. Pascal Wade, a prominent citizen of Columbus. The house was built of locally produced brick. The pedimented portico is supported by huge, square columns, calling attention to its vast structural strength. The original house contained only four rooms which was customary at that time. The kitchen was located in a separate building in the back yard. The home beautifully displays an outstanding collection of artwork from the Asia, Latin America, Africa and the United States.

According to rumor, a carpetbagger occupied the house during Reconstruction. He had accumulated great wealth over the years and, according to legend, hid his gold in a well in the backyard. 406 Third Avenue North
