The Howard Home makes a commanding presence on the corner of Broadway and 2nd Street where its 1930’s ranch style architecture stands out from among the older buildings that surround it. It was built as a showpiece of modern style for its age. While the home has been recently renovated, many original features remain throughout and show how “everything old is new again,” as its elegant black and white tile, oak and pine floors and crafted metal hardware are back in vogue today. In the den, floor and ceiling chestnut paneling and the marble fireplace set off a view of the river. Leaded windows, original cabinetry and period chandeliers all add to the charm of this thoroughly modern yet drenched-in-character home.

This house honors the Harpers and their lovingly executed restoration.

This lovely Federal Style Home was built around 1840 and is currently owned by Angelia and Jay Upchurch. The family has been working on renovating the home since 2015 when they moved to the area. Angelia’s love of antiques led the family to purchase a home in the downtown historic district. You will enjoy many special antiques throughout the home.
At one time this home had been divided into four apartments and had also sat empty for several years. The home features evenly spaced two over two windows and triangular pediments. It has a gabled roof with overhanging eaves and dentils in the front. Most of the floors are original to the home as well as woodwork and door and window frames. The three fireplaces in the home feature their original summer inserts. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Homes.
