Sayre-Alford House, Circa 1829, Sparta

Begun around 1829 by Robert Sayre, this house was owned by the Alford family for many years. After a long period of decline, the landmark has recently been purchased with an eye on its preservation. (As of late 2015, this house has been restored by architect Ben Carter. I’ll get photos of the restoration the next time I’m in the area).

    Photographed this before purchase and restoration. So beautiful. So happy to hear it’s been restored.
