The Lukens National Historic District

The successful growth of the Brandywine mill is reflected in Terracina, which was built in 1850-1851 by Rebecca Lukens for her daughter, Isabella Lukens Huston, and Isabella's husband, Dr. Charles Huston. Constructed in the Country Gothic style made popular by American designers A.J. Davis & A.J. Downing, the exterior displays Gothic Revival features - peaked wall dormers with tall finials, diamond-paned lancet windows, and a large overhanging roof cornice with curvilinear bargeboards cut in Gothic tracery. A two-story Renaissance Revival bay was added to the south side of the house in 1875. When the Lukens iron business was incorporated in 1890, Dr. Huston became the firm's first president. His home, Terracina, is the link between the 18th-century Brandywine Mansion and the more substantial late 19th- and early 20th-century buildings that became its neighbors. Terracina remained a family residence until 1985. It is not owned by the Graystone Society, which was undertaken its restoration and preservation.
