A portion of this house is said to date to the 1700s, though the present form dates to its 1849 purchase by Young L. G. Harris (founder and namesake of Young Harris College). The house was originally built in the Gothic Revival style but additions in 1900 gave it a more Victorian appearance.

Over the years many people have shared photographs of this house, but I’ve yet to locate anything about its history. It has apparently been in this condition for a long time.
The architecture indicates the house was likely Queen Anne or Folk Victorian in style. Since it’s a couple of miles from the center of Maysville, it was probably a working farm. A smokehouse survives on the property, as well.
