md Utzman-Chambers House Rowan Museum 116SouthJacksonStreetThe Utzman-Chambers House continues to be one of the finest examples of Federal townhouses surviving in North Carolina. The house, built for local cabinetmaker Lewis Utzman, reflects the lifestyle of the area’s more affluent citizens during the early 1800s. It was built by Jacob Stirewalt, the master builder of that era in Rowan County, and features a unique hand-carved staircase. The house was purchased by Maxwell Chambers in 1847 and used as a Manse by the First Presbyterian Church until 1913. It was restored by the Rowan Museum, Inc., and opened to the public as a house museum in 1955.
