The Hahn Home

Emerton Family House

Constructed in 1918 by the Emerton family, this building is one of the most striking mansions in all of York. This massive stone home was designed in the Tudor Revival Style of architecture. Almost half of all Tudor Style buildings have no decorative half-timbers, as is the case with the stately Hahn Home. This building—classified by some local historians as Jacobethian, a sub-type of Tudor—is very unique to the area. The northern section of the complex was built as a gymnasium with indoor swimming pool. Yet another J.A. Dempwolf design, Renaissance Revival features are also employed.
