Built in the 1830’s, before the Civil War, as a private residence by Charles Fowler. He was a prosperous merchant and banker from Albany. The historic Fowler family cemetery with its picturesque stone walls, gate and monument still stand on the property.
The estate was acquired in the 1880’s by Harry Downs who owned and operated the Chester House (a large Adirondack hotel) on Main Street where the gas station/mini-mart now stands.
The Chester inn is listed on National Register of Historic Places. Recipient of 2005 Adirondack Architectural Heritage Award.
