Harrison-Lark-Alley-Jones House, 1830s & 1896, Dawson

Originally a simple farmhouse, built in the 1830s, this is thought to be the oldest house in Dawson. It was moved on logs in 1896 and remodeled to its present Queen Anne appearance at that time.

Hand-carved ornamental pendants featuring a floral motif surround the upper section of the front porch. Stylistically, they’re more akin to the Arts & Crafts movement than Queen Anne.

Dr. W. C. Paschal House, Circa 1875, Dawson

One of the grandest in Dawson, this home was built in a much simpler style for Dr. W. C. Paschal, a Confederate veteran. Dr. Paschal commissioned F. A. Ruggles to re-imagine it as an elaborate Queen Anne in the 1890s. It was sold by the Paschal family to the Edwards family in 1936. It was subdivided into apartments in the following years. Thankfully, Gail and Paul Rakel purchased it in 1988 and spent years restoring it to its original condition.
