Constructed in the Plantation Plain style in 1820 by an unknown builder, this house was purchased in 1853 by Edmund Pendleton, who expanded it for his large family. R. A. Graves bought it in 1880 and modified it to its present Victorian appearance. It is presently unoccupied.

    I owned and did a partial restoration on the Pendleton-Graves house from 1989 till 1993. This house has hit on hard times several times in the last 100 years. It is now vacant and belongs to Hancock County. It was put up for tax sale, but there were no bids. I loved this house. It and it’s ghosts. I would dearly love, and would help all I can, if someone will purchase this house and restore it. I put on a new roof in 1992 and painted the outside, and most of the inside, during the rest of my wonderful and magical stay there. The location of the house is terrible, but it is so worth saving. The interior is fantastic. Please help save this house. The last large Victorian (I know that is not how the original house was laid out) that went up for sealed bid (this house’s fate) sold for $5,000. Please save this house. Thanks, Nancy Stephens. PS. I have copies of some the old deeds and from my research, the house was built by Thomas Whaley around 1815.
