This Spring’s tour includes a variety of homes illustrating how historic structures change over the years. The Barnett-Stokes home probably most resembles its 1830s origin. The minor Victorian addition on the left side of the Billups-Tuell house scarcely changed its appearance whereas the 1890s makeover of a mid-century core completely transformed the Magnolias. The front of Crawford-Cooke house, which was moved from Sharon, Ga., looks just as it did before the relocation, but the two-story front porch is likely an addition to the original 1840s façade. The 1900 Hollis cottage shows additions that added livability to a modest home on the north edge of town. And finally, the Gilbert house shows how new construction can create wonderfully livable modern space in authentic historic style. Most of the homes on tour exhibit careful and beautiful landscaping, but a chance to stroll along the walk-ways at Boxwood will be the highlight for garden-loving visitors.
