The Inn at Salado (Norton-Orgain House)

-A A +A
Norton-Orgain House
1872. N. Main St. at Pace Park Dr.

Traditional building techniques of the state in the late nineteenth century are reflected in this two-story vernacular I-house, particularly the central-hall plan and gable-end limestone chimneys. The house is a product of Upper South house forms that migrated with skilled builders in this period of architectural development.
