This was built around the turn of the last century for J. H. Kelly, who once served as president of the Bank of Monticello. Though in a state of decline, it remains one of Monticello’s most interesting houses.
Nandinas were full of fruit when I was here in February, reminding me of how popular they once were in Southern yards and flower gardens. My great-grandmother had a row of them outside her back door.
