  • Patteson House (S. Allen Chambers, Jr.)

Although this mid-nineteenth-century farmhouse was badly deteriorated by the 1950s, the original frame and most of the fabric remained. Now restored, the simple two-story, two-bay structure has a shed-roofed front porch matched by a board-and-batten rear wing. Both the main house and wing have massive sandstone chimneys. The house, open on weekends in the summer, features interpretive exhibits about the area's Civil War history.
