Fairlawn, the heavily gabled and brown-shingled estate of Eugene V.R. Thayer, was built c. 1880 on South Main Street. The architect was most likely John Hubbard Sturgis, who was often commissioned by the family. I the early 1920s, architect Henry Forbes Bigelow (who had married Thayer's daughter Susan) greatly altered the building by removing many arches and covered entrances and painting it white. A servants' wing was removed and placed closer to the main street. The "White House" now houses the English department of Atlantic Union College. The servants' wing is used as apartments.
