Hall-and-Parlor House, Tennille

This is likely an early example (perhaps 1850s and no later than 1870s) of this form, judging by the entryway. The porch is probably a later addition. Hall-and-parlor and central hallway houses are related forms of the broader vernacular I-house family. Most I-houses I have encountered are two stories and better known in the South as Plantation Plain; they generally feature shed rooms. More documentation of this example is needed.

    Thank you for all these photos and historical data.

    Live in Tallahassee and some are close by.

    Are you aware of anyone that does a Florida site that’s similar?
