This property was originally the site of a frame school house used by early Hartwell Methodists as a meeting place prior to the construction of the Methodist Church in 1897. Built in 1896 for Mr. Charles I. Kidd, a prominent Hartwell citizen and leading businessman who came to Hartwell in 1881 and owned a livery business with his brother. A fine example of Queen Anne style architecture, it was built on lot # 113 of the original Hartwell city plan. Look closely above the front steps to see a Masonic emblem carved into the gingerbread trim
