Description

Originally “Jessieville” it was built in about 1840 for merchant Joseph Smith and was extensively altered by Emil Castens in the 1880s. Harry Mosenthal, a second generation of the merchants who set up a branch of Mosenthal Brothers in Main Street in 1842, lived in the house at the end of last century and the present name comes from the family’s London address at that time.
