Gordon-Jewett House
603 East Main Street
New Albany, IN 47150

Listing Description:
Harry and Helen Gordon purchased this lot in August 1889 for $1,400 and the building permit, dated June 1890, lists the cost of construction of the Queen Anne-style house as $2,000.

In May 1894, it appears that the Gordons traded houses with lawyer, Henry Jewett, who lived at 1501 East Main during the same period of time the Gordons were living at 603.
Henry apparently used this house as rental property and lived at 611 East Main from 1894 -1904. For a brief period of time (1905-1906), he took up residency here at 603 before his new home on Ridgeway Avenue in Silver Hills was completed.

The home has had a variety of owners since, and the second floor was divided into apartments. The home is visible to the far right in the 1910 parade photo below, while the other photo shows the home in 1969.
