Knight House, Circa 1848, Madison

Also known as the Knight-Jarvis-Senft House, for some of the 11 owners who have called it home, this Madison landmark was built by Dr. Gazaway B. Knight, who commanded the locally organized Panola Guards during the Civil War. Dr. Knight’s wife, Isabell, was the daughter of U. S. Senator Joshua Hill. After a fire in 1915, the house, originally a 2-story Colonial, was redesigned to its present appearance. Many original features survived the fire and the house is an outstanding example of the blending of historical and modern amenities.
