The Historic Hillman Barnes House – STRUCTURE ONLY

95 Old Poplar Creek Road, Henderson, NC 27537, USA
  • $5,000

Description

Hillman Barnes built this fine Greek Revival house around 1860 to replace a c.1830 house lost to fire. In 1919 Barnes’ grandaughter Nellie and her husband moved the house on logs to adjacent land carved out for them. They added the present two-story rear wing and updated a few of the fireplaces to more fashionable Craftsman mantels. The right front parlor remains the most original.

The house displays a variety of interesting achitectural features including mortise and tenon construction, wide overhanging eaves, corner fluted pilasters and molded caps, six over six windows with wide beaded architrave and molded backbands, and a fine six-paneled door with transom and sidelights. The entire house is covered in a well-maintained standing seam metal roof.

The house sits on land very near I-85 that is being developed into a corporate park and must be moved within the next few months.
