: Photograph of a two-story stone home in Muskingum County, Ohio. The home has ivy growing on the front and several large trees in the landscaping.
This house is presently the residence of James Stubbins at 305 Woodlawn Avenue in Zanesville. Known as the Henry Mathews House, the residence was built by Dr. Increase Mathews for his son Henry in 1840. The doctor's residence is across the street and is one of the museums of the Pioneer and Historical Society. The stone for both houses, as well as the nearby Stone Academy, came from Dr. Mathews' quarry which was located several blocks south on Woodlawn Avenue.
The Henry Mathews House faces east. On the south side, not visible in the photo, there was a second floor porch. When Mr. Stubbins restored the house in the 1980s, he removed the deteriorated porch and did not replace it. He also added a garage to the rear. The door at the front of the house has not been used for years with the main functional door being on the south side. The house is a contributing part of the Putnam Historic District.
