- Provenance note:
- David Winstead, first owner; David Williams Winstead (tavernkeeper and stagecoach stop operator) and Susan Rice Winstead, second owner
- Architectural note:
- Alterations to the building resulted in triple chimneys on the west elevation.
- Historical note:
- The building was moved back when highway construction encroached on the property in 1953. Local tradition attributed the structure as being a former Revolution era tavern, but the home's estimated construction date produced arguments against using the moniker 'Tories Tavern' in reference to the home. The structure burned down in 1968.
