Hall-and-Parlor Cottage, Circa 1895, Wilkinson County

This hall-and-parlor cottage, complete with a preacher’s room, is a wonderful example of this historic vernacular form. While the romantic notion of a preacher’s room would suggest it hosted traveling preachers, it was more likely just an added room to accommodate a growing family. Perhaps visiting family used it, as well.

A resource survey suggests that this house may have originally been a tenant house.
