Greek Revival Office, Homer

Though expanded and moved a short distance, this structure dates to the early settlement of Homer. It may have been a lawyer’s office, considering its proximity to the courthouse. Typical of the era, it was built in the shotgun style and featured a vernacular interpretation of the Greek Revival, which has been lost with its expansion. It’s located in the yard of the Jolly House and could have also been Dr. Jolly’s office at some point.

    I find this very interesting. Also, my Mother who was born in Homer, said she was delivered by Dr. Jolley. She passed away in 2002 at the age of 88. I wonder about a connection to this Dr. Jolley.

      Hello. Just wondering about Dr. Jolley. My mom said my brother, Steve Jolley Simmons was named for him on February 5, 1946. I never heard much about this doctor.
