Durham Place, Circa 1844 & 1877, Maxeys

This gabled-ell Victorian cottage originated as a saddlebag house circa 1844 and was expanded to its present configuration in 1877. The property was first occupied by Dr. Milledge Spencer Durham, who was also an early postmaster in Maxeys. The adjacent apothecary was used as an office and compounding pharmacy until the last of the Durham doctors, Dr. Samuel Davis Durham, gave up his practice in 1923.
