The Duncarrick (Gaelic for “home of the Kennedy’s”) Mansion was originally erected as a farmhouse sometime before 1850. Grafton C. Kennedy, a prominent Dayton lawyer, bought the property in 1887. This manor house was designed by the architectural firm of Peters, Burns and Pretzinger. Albert Pretzinger is considered Dayton’s’ foremost native architect and several of his buildings are included on the National Register. Duncarrick is significant architecturally as an example of American provincial architecture successfully superimposing Tudor detail on a basic American home type.
