This photograph shows a view from the northeast corner of the John Snow House, located at 41 West New England Avenue. It was built ca. 1815 and is a typical Federal style brick. John Snow, the house's best known owner, emigrated to Worthington in 1817, to become part of James Kilbourn's Manufacturing comapny. He was trained as a jeweler, but is mainly known for his Masonic activity. It is probable that early Masonic meetings were held in this home until the Lodge was completed.

The family home was occupied by descendents until 1939. It is now used as suites for the Worthington Inn.
