The Sartwell mansion on Main St. in Smethport is believed to have been built by Solomon Sartwell in about 1849.  He came to the area in 1816, and was the first of the Sartwell family in the area.  Solomon was a man of many talents.  He was high sheriff, a lumberman, a merchant, county treasurer, postmaster, and associate judge.  After his first wife died he married the daughter of Isaac and Phoebe King.  Together they had six children Alfred, Chester, George, Roswell, Mary, and Samuel.
