Mahlon Janney (1731-1812), son of Waterford’s founder Amos Janney, commissioned Edward Dorsey to construct this residence on “the Big Hill” of Main Street. Originally facing Main Street, the house was Janney's home until his death. In 1818, Charles G. Edwards, a physician trained at the University of Pennsylvania, purchased the property from Janney’s widow, Sarah. Dr. Edwards lived here until his death in 1851. By 1894, the house was the residence of Ann Elizabeth Bond Hough, widow of Amasa Hough Sr. African American teacher William B. Minor later bought it for about $500. At Minor’s death, the recently-formed Waterford Foundation acquired the house, known as the “Dr. Edwards House,” to stabilize and preserve it. Subsequent owners made significant modifications, including removing interior partitions on the first floor to create one uninterrupted space, adding an Italianate touch with window treatments in a new wing, relocating the front door to open onto a patio, and painting the brick white. Located in the heart of Waterford, this home offers the tranquility of village life with the convenience of being a short drive from modern amenities. This home is a rare gem, offering both timeless beauty and modern luxury. Don’t miss the opportunity to make it yours!
