J. S. Cato House, Jefferson County

Nancy Shore contacted me several years ago about photographing this house, which belonged to her great-grandfather, and I’m glad I finally got to do so. Nancy notes that it has been unoccupied for over 30 years.

The view from the front porch isn’t bad.

The main entryway, with sidelights and transom, is typical of houses built in the late 19th century.

Inverted saw-tooth pyramids adorn the eaves and are the most impressive ornamental feature of this otherwise typical gabled-ell farmhouse.

The house also features an enclosed rear addition, itself a winged-gable form, which possibly originated as a separate kitchen. This is a common modificaton with this form.

Antebellum Farmhouse, Lamar

Though the house has obviously (thankfully) been restored, I believe it may have originated in the antebellum era. The sidelights appear to have been altered, but otherwise the profile of the house is fairly authentic. It’s located near the long forgotten community of Lamar. I hope to learn more.

Folk Victorian Farmhouse, Dooly County

This exceptional double-pen farmhouse in northwestern Dooly County, featuring a shed room at the rear, is a highly stylized example of the form. Queen Anne porch posts give the house its distinct appearance, and the floor-to-ceiling windows and transom are unusual features for such a small house.
