Captain Clarence Kirwan, the builder of Weston Hall.
Weston Hall enjoys magnificent views of the East River and beyond to the Mobjack Bay. Massive trees grace the sweeping lawn. There is a view across Mill Creek to nearby Poplar Grove and its original tide mill, the last one remaining in the Mobjack area.
Weston Hall was built by Captain Clarence Kirwan between 1900 and 1919. Legend has it that no construction was allowed to take place while the captain was at sea. Pine timber from the property was used for floors and doors.The sturdy-looking Arts and Crafts-style exterior belies the light and airy feeling of the rooms within. Built to resemble the layout of a ship, the wide entry hall is 50 feet long and sweeps from the land side entrance to the water side.Large light-filled rooms with high ceilings provide an open and sunny ambiance which serve as a backdrop for the art collection and the artfully chosen decor.
