Save this old house.
The house is hardly recognizable from when it was built for A.P. Urquhart. According to the 1880 U.S. Census, Urquhart, a merchant, lived here with his wife Anna and their infant daughter Rosa. That would make the home’s build date pre-1880.
Sometime before 1900, Willis M. Wynn, hotel proprietor, and his wife Nancy purchased the home. They lived here with their four children, Dorah, Linton, Henry and Miletus. Nancy added the second story around 1906. Soon after, with most of the kids grown and out of the house, she and her son Miletus, along with daughter-in-law Ruth, ran the home as a hotel, housing up to six boarders at any one time up until the 1920s. By this time, A.P. had gotten into the cotton trade.
I would imagine that the Urquharts would be turning over in their graves to see the current condition of their beloved home.
