Exemplifying a unique evolution of architectural style in Mathews County, Springdale preserves two important stages of construction. The original portion, built in the late-18th-century, is a simple but elegant Georgian-style two-story residence. Around the 1840s, a new owner significantly expanded the house with a Federal-style wing that uses a central hyphen to connect the Georgian and Federal portions. The house also features a locally distinctive lunette window. Located on an inlet of Put-In Creek, Springdale preserves the central domestic portion of a historic plantation landscape that thrived from about 1774 into the 20th century in Mathews County.
