Annamede, named for Anna Davisson, wife of the builder, is an impressive Colonial Revival brick house that appears quite citified in spite of its rural setting. A giant-order Corinthian porch that stretches the length of the facade projects with a pediment over the central bay. The broad frieze of the entablature originally had composition ornaments of swags, laurel wreaths, and shields.
The Davissons, obviously prosperous and prominent, obtained plans for their fifteenroom mansion from a well-known mail-order architecture firm in Knoxville, Tennessee. Descendants still own the house, which is in almost pristine condition and contains many original furnishings. The billiard table was intended for an attic room, but because stairs to the third floor proved too small, it still takes up a large space in the second-floor hallway.
