The Col. William Bond-Jesse Hawley House is a National Register Home built in 1824 by Col. William Bond; it was the first brick home in Lockport. The house was then owned by Erie Canal advocate Jesse Hawley and occupied over the years by various owners.

The home came into the possession of the Chase family in 1887 and remained in that family until 1968. The Chases were relatives of Salmon P. Chase, Abraham Lincoln’s Secretary of the Treasury and later Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. The house has 12 rooms and is furnished primarily in the 1820′s Empire period.
