As these two perspectives attest, the house has been modified over time to include the columns and extended roof on the front. It’s one of the most impressive plantation houses I’ve ever found. Thanks to John P. Rabun, Jr., for the identification.

    To give you a bit more context, the house was constructed circa 1895 by William W. Daniel, a veteran of the confederacy. The story handed down through the family is that W.W. hired a carpenter, paid him $100.00 plus room and board to design and build this house. W.W. provided the labor from his farm, all lumber was sawn from timber on the property at his sawmill which sat to the east of the house down by the branch. The attached kitchen and large portico are said to have been added in the 1920s or 30s by W.W.’s son James Uriah Daniel.
    About the same time of the home’s construction, W.W. (my GG grandfather) sat down and wrote his memoirs of the war for southern independence. The original is still in tact, along with several letters from the war written home by he and his older brother Cpt. Isaac C. Daniel.
