Dogtrot House, Tattnall County


Located southeast of Reidsville, this dogtrot is an amazing survivor. From my perspective, these are getting harder and harder to find.

    Yes. You almost never see these houses any more. I’ve seen house plans that deem themselves dog trot” plans but they don’t get the concept. I spent many days in a house just like this while growing up and I loved it.

    You taught this ignorant person where the name shotgun house came from. Now where does the name dogtrot house come from? Thanks for all your posts. I enjoy them immensely.

    Thanks Brian. A great example and a true survivor indeed! Of course there would be more survivors had shop built ”off the shelf” front door / sidelight installations not become available before WW1. Sometimes ”progress” really messes up heritage, tradition and architecture!
