Historical Summary:
Probably constructed form builders' plan books, the straight-forward design of this house is enlivened by deocrative detailing. The clapboard structure rests on a rubblestone foundation. The long porch raliing is composed of turned spindles and columns that support the porch roof. Mitered lengths of wood face the front gable and form a background for the decorative sunbrust. The small, rectangular second-floor windows rest on equally decorative wood-framed flower motifs (Ridgeland Revealed, p29).
