In Reply to: Re: Noland's Ferry House by Debbie Robison of 1800


I just stumbled on this post. I was actually in the house yesterday. My grandfather bought the home and surrounding property in 1950 and restored the it over the ensuing 15 years, selling it in 1966 or 1967. Yes, the home still stands. The original Georgian home is the central portion of the house today. From what I can tell (although I am no historian or architect), both the interior and exterior are largely unmolested by renovation, and some original Hessian woodwork remains. The slope in front of Noland's Ferry was eased in the 1950s, and two basement (slave) doors were turned into windows. The wings were added on both sides in the late 1960s or early 1970s.
