Lynwood was built in 1868, and owned by Charles Hart. In the mid-1800s the Hart family were prominent local business people and merchants. The house has three tall triangular gables and a handsome central entrance way. For many years a private house, it was later a prominent local store, selling art, antiques and collectibles. It has recently been extensively renovated keeping the character and original architectural details intact and now operates as an inn and restaurant.
