Moore-Pate House, Circa 1820, Taliaferro County

This amazing house is critically endangered. Several outbuildings survive on the property. I hope to update its history in the future. Thanks to James Woodall for confirming the identification.

Georgian Cottage, Taliaferro County

Discussions with locals suggest this home is likely antebellum.

Schoolhouse, Sharon

This was originally the school for the Sharon-Raytown community but for many years has been home to the Sharon-Raytown Garden Club, the second oldest such organization in the state, and serves as the de facto community center for the area.

Georgian Cottage, Sharon

This house is decidedly different in style from the Georgian Cottage in the previous post, but follows the same general floor plan of four rooms divided by a central hallway. This is a wonderful antebellum example.

Gunn House, Raytown

This wonderful vernacular house features a half-fieldstone chimney, fieldstone piers, shed room and detached kitchen.

Thanks to James Woodall for the identification.

Darden House, 1884, Raytown

This is one of the finest Queen Anne cottages I’ve encountered in this area. Thanks to James Woodall for the identification.

Moore Brothers General Merchandise, 1894, Raytown

Moore Brothers General Merchandise store was the heart of the Raytown community for many years. Raytown is essentially a “suburb” of Sharon.

The Greek Revival elements of the store indicate it may be of earlier construction than the given date.
