Julia @ Hooked on Houses

Oh, wow, I LOVE this post. One of my favorite things is to see a house with history--and this one even comes with a famous ghost! How cool that you found that old photograph of the house to show us, too.

Thanks for joining the blog party, Maya!


What a wonderful, old house. Ever since I got my camera I've been meaning to visit the William Harris Homestead, whom my cousin runs. I know I'll get some fantastic photos there if I ever get in gear.


Awesome old house...thanks for sharing!




Your photos are beautiful, the lighting really enhances the textures; I love them! Historic homes are awesome, 15 people in 2 rooms...I don't think kids today could handle it!

Beautiful! Full of history! Great pics also, you can practically see the hands that built it!

Ooooh...how neat! What a different house to tour for HOH. :) Thank you for the history. Great photos.


What a great tour. And I really love your pics. You have a knack for catching wonderful detail in interesting light. Great post!

We are so far removed from that way of life now, it's hard to comprehend, isn't it? Very interesting -Jane

I love this post. What a clever house tour to add to Julia's party. We all get a history lesson too:-) Thanks for sharing!

Very cool story! Love the pictures too (as always). We will be driving through Tennessee next week on our way to visit family in North Carolina.


What a perfect tour for this time of year. History always captivates me when the weather starts getting brisk. Thank you! I especially like seeing the old photo to compare. This building has been so well maintained--what a treasure to have near you.
Thank you for stopping by my tour of a home in Prague earlier today, too.

Thank you so much for sharing it :)


What beautiful photography this is - I love it. And I've always loved history - so this is very interesting to me. Thank you for sharing it!

laura @ the shorehouse.

I love this post, too! I'm totally "Hooked on Historical Houses" (hey...maybe that's Julia's next tour. :-) I just love that a little second room enabled them to take on boarders. And...I would totally be camped out there waiting for the ghost.


I loved reading this post and learning this history, seeing these images. Thanks.


Love to see these rare old homes. Very unique tour. Beth


I don't know if anyone else can see it, but
in the last picture, bottom right, I can
see an image of a man. Maybe he was there
after all.


Ewww! I was thinking the same thing.....Robyn

Just found you. Lovely story. And even lovelier old home. Wish I had one built that sturdily. Loved this post.


Fantastic tour!
