Facility:O'Neil Robinson House
Description:Located adjacent to the Dr. Moses Mason House, the Society's Robinson House was begun in 1821 as the home of O'Neil W. Robinson (1797-1867) and his wife, Betsey H. Straw (1797-1878), the sister of Agnes Straw Mason, who lived next door. Born in Chatham, New Hampshire, O'Neil Robinson came to Bethel about 1820 and achieved success as a local businessman, operating a store just north of his home until 1835, when he and his family moved to Portland. A later resident of Waterford, Maine, Robinson served as a State Senator and Sheriff of Oxford County from 1842-1850. He also owned large tracts of timber land in the nearby New Hampshire communities of Gorham, Berlin, Milan, and Dummer.
