Dawson House, Circa 1820, & Commissary, 1920s, Putnam County

This impressive house is the center of a large historic farm property, still active today.

Though it has been modernized with new windows, porch, and wings, it still retains elements of its early appearance and likely dates to the late 1810s or early 1820s.

The bricks on the two original chimneys appear to be slave-made. The porch and unfinished timber posts are likely later additions. A circa 1920s commissary is also present.
