Huston House
Posted March 1, 2021, by Kathleen Colquhoun Halm (kathleenhalm3 [at] gmail [dot] com)

This is inaccurate. The older part of the house dates from the 1790s. The portion with the porch and columns dates from the 1850s. The house was originally built by Robert Huston, first justice of the peace of Lincoln County. That part of the hosue extends from the front, with the smaller entrance, along the side to the second lilac bush. (The section after that my father added in the 1980s.) The Greek Revival section was added on (after part of the original house had been removed) by his descendant Gilmore Huston in the 1850s. The house has two styles from two time periods and is older than this post states. My family has owned this house since 1965 and I live there for much of the year and have for many years.
