  1. Thanks Brian. Do you know anything about the history of this house? Sure looks as if it could be one of those Plantation Plain houses common in the 1820-1870 era. Is it pre Civil War?

  2. Brian, my Grandmother in Virginia built a house like this around 1900. I looked forward to visiting her every July 4th, for the family reunion. My bedroom was the center window upstairs, over the parlor.
    My two Uncles hitched mules to wagon for ride
    to Patrick Henry’s home to retrieve bricks after his house was destroyed by lightning.
    The bricks were used for the two chimneys!
