Dunwoody-Tyson House, Circa 1890, The Ridge

Built in 1890 by McDonald* Dunwoody, this iconic Victorian home was sold in 1905 to Charles M. Tyson, a prominent timber broker and president of the Darien Bank. It was owned by the Tyson family for many years and was later acquired by the Deans. It’s one of the finest houses extant in The Ridge.

*-One source identifies Mr. Dunwoody as McDonald while another lists him as Walter.
