Built in1752 for George Smith, banker and grandson of the founder of Smith's Bank. A former Georgian town house converted to a subscription library in1822, which continues to thrive. Includes one of the earliest commercial photographic studios in the country. The building has suffered from water ingress for a long period of time due to a complicated rainwater management system.
