Architectural note:
The property retains the qualities of an in-town antebellum estate, including brick outbuildings. After the building was moved, small additions were added, such as closets and a cellar. The kitchen was left in its original location. The grounds were landscaped and the original foundations were used as an attraction for the garden.
Historical note:
The date is approximate, the home was constructed in the mid-nineteenth century. During the Civil War, the house was used as a Union Hospital. The Union Army removed all but one of the marble mantles. House was moved in 1927 to approximately 100 feet south of its original location.
