The Drewsville Mansion is a historic house on Old Cheshire Turnpike in the Drewsville village of Walpole, New Hampshire. The ​2 12 story wood frame mansion was built in 1880 for Bolivar and Sarah Lathrop Lovell. It is a rare local example of Stick/Eastlake style architecture in an area that has predominantly older style buildings. The house is located at the south end of the Drewsville Common, which it faces. The main facade is sheltered by a single story porch with a jigsaw-cut decorative frieze, and a second-story bay projects over the porch above the main entrance. This bay has decorative stickwork and curving brackets. The interior of the house has retained much of its original finish, despite being subdivided into apartments and suffering fire damage in one wing. [2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. [1]
