The Spring Hope Historical Society recently visited a century-old farmhouse, restored by Don and Virgie Liles of Spring Hope.
The project took four years to coplete. The two-story, double-pile, central-hall bungalow with a cross-hip roof is one of only a few existing in Nash County.
The facade is dominated by a deep, 1,000-square-foot wraparound porch, supported by tapered columns, that provides natural light onto the central hall.
Original slate shingles cover the roof of the 5,000-square-foot home. All the original wood floors were restored. There are four tall chimney stacks with corbelled brick, which support eight fireplaces.
Never miss a local story.
The front door is framed by leaded sidelights and a transom.
Over 100 people attended the tour.
