The original estate that Governor McDaniel purchased around 1880 included 15 acres of land. 🌳

Toward the rear of the property is a small cottage that may date back to the late 19th or early 20th century.

On the western edge of the property is a garage built in 1930.

In 1970, Emily Tichenor had the garage converted into an apartment, and she had the carport built.

The houses are known as the Carriage House and the Glaefke Cottage. 🏚️

The grounds now consist of 7 beautifully landscaped acres, a well house, Gipsy’s garden, a hedged rear lawn, two cottages, and the main house.

The iconic well house and row of hedges that line the back lawn have served as a backdrop for weddings and events. 👰
