Brent-Payne House

-A A +A
c. 1830. c. 1880, remodeling. 114 Lee St.

Built in the Federal style for Robert Brent, this was later the home of General William Payne, a prominent Confederate cavalryman, who remodeled it, adding the Italianate porch and Eastlake brackets and bargeboards: a real confection and a standout!
