  South Mason Street

This picture shows the Mary Jackson House on the left side of the street. Opposite the Mary Jackson House at 112 South Mason Street is the blue Miles Cary House
Built circ. 1800. This two-story federal style residence was added to a small Dutch-roofed house, which was later moved to the back of the lot and was eventually torn down. The house was restored between 1997 and 2003 by Trey Gwaltney.

Farther down the street at the corner of Cedar Street & South Mason Street is the red brick Trinity Methodist Church. This Gothic structure, built in 1898, replaced an earlier frame church.

In the next block (but not shown) at 205 South Mason Street is the red brick Smithfield Academy (circ. 1826)

The building was erected in 1826 as a private school for young men. After 1872, it became a public school and later a Masonic Lodge. Restored in 1963, it is used by the Trinity United Methodist Church.
