- Architectural note:
- In 1820, there was great remodeling and enlarging of the house. The original front porch was removed, and the large south wing was added, making the house face the east instead of the south. The new wing provided a main hall and a large ball room which boasted a fine pendant chandelier, now lost. The Greek Revival trim added to both wings at this time presented a uniform look. All evidence of slave quarters and outbuildings has been destroyed with the exception of the old smoke house, standing in good repair.
- Historical note:
- The oldest home in Vance County. The home was constructed in the late eighteenth century and is one of Vance County's most famous plantation houses. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
