Saltbox House, 1810s, Putnam County

Anne Chamlee writes: This may have been the house of Richmond Terrell, built before 1820… She also notes that she was unable to get a better photograph as there were renters in the house at the time and she didn’t feel it was safe to spend more time there. Anne was particularly interested in this house as her mother was a Terrell, from a branch of the family that first came to Wilkes County in 1784 and spread out over the state afterward. I’ve assigned it a date of the 1810s, but it may be earlier. Its present status is unknown.

Hall-and-Parlor House, Jones County

Anne Chamlee documented this house to the very end. The photo above was made in 1997, after the house burned; the photo below was made in April 1991, when someone was still living there.

Central Hallway House, Jewell

The Victorian porch posts and balustrade are later additions to the house, which appears to be of antebellum construction.

Reynolds House, Mayfield

One historic resource survey dates this Plantation Plain/I-House to circa 1860, but I believe it was built earlier than that. Other than the name of the first owner, I have been unsuccessful at locating more history.

Birdsong-Hill-Elliot House, Mayfield

As evidenced by its present state, Mayfield’s iconic Birdsong-Hill-Elliot House is likely in its last days without quick intervention. It has rapidly deteriorated since I last photographed it in 2014.
