Shingle Style House, Circa 1908, Demorest

The Shingle style was an eclectic Victorian movement most popular between 1880-1900. Shingle style houses need not be covered in shingles but need at least one prominent feature containing them, therefore, my best identification for this house. I’ve seen this identified as being originally owned by George Pease but haven’t confirmed it at this time. Whatever the details, it’s a great house.

Victorian House, Circa 1895, Demorest

This house features handmade brick that may have local origins and may be earlier than the date given. Closed Gothic windows on one side of the house suggest it may have been a church at one time. I will update when I learn more.

Methodist-Congregational Federated Church, 1908, Demorest

 

This was first home to Union Congregational Church, founded in 1892 by an Ohio-born minister in the Women’s Christian Temperance Union hall. The early members were from New England and the Midwest and part of the prohibition settlement that became Demorest. As the Congregationalists never had a large membership, they merged with Demorest Methodist Church in 1947 and remain active today.
