HERMITAGE — The Stewart House, which has served as the home of the Hermitage Historical Society since 1997, will be celebrating its 150th anniversary this weekend.

The house was built in 1868-1869 by Robert and Mary Ann Stewart, who were farmers at the time. To commemorate the house and its history, an anniversary celebration will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday, Hermitage Historical Society Treasurer Rod McAdams said.

The celebration will include tours and a presentation on the history of the Stewart House, as well as proclamations from Hermitage city officials and state senators. Other historical societies from Greenville, Jamestown, Sharon, Mercer and Sharpsville were also invited to attend, McAdams said.

The majority of the Stewart House’s windows date back to the 1940s, and the Hermitage Historical Society has been soliciting donations to replace the windows since this spring.

So far the society has installed 13 new windows, with eight or nine left to go. A dedication recognizing those who helped pay for the windows will be held Sunday, McAdams said.

Anyone from the public is invited to attend, and there will be refreshments.
