The house you see before you was the home of several plantation owners. John Brown built the Federal-style house in the 1780s. Later, John Brooks and Samuel Berry lived here with their families. Each owner left his imprint by making changes to the structure and landscape.

Clues to the Past
Notice the different colors of brick and mortar, and the remnants of plaster and paint on the expterior walls. These and other architecture clues tell us how the house has changed over time.

The building was constructed in three different sections, including a main block and two additions. The eastern wing was probably built before 1800 as a detached kitchen and was interjoined to the main house. The damage to the additions was restored with modern brick. Elsewhere, you can see traces of former porches and shed additions.
