Owner Tim Reisenwitz writes: Thank you for posting The Bentley House (c. 1860). I am currently restoring this antebellum and had an architectural historian visit and confirm the time of construction and also that the architect was most likely John Wind (1819-1863). John Wind was most famous for spectacular plantation homes but also designed town cottages such as this one, particularly with the U-shaped configuration. He also designed many area public buildings.
