|Scope & Content||
The builder of this substantial wooden house, on a high brick basement, is undocumented. It was purchased in 1857 by Count Eugene Joseph Huchet, a French nobleman. Tradition says he lost his fortune in a single day's trading in cotton. The house was inherited by his 3 daughters. Miss Naomi Elizabeth Huchet, the last surviving daughter, died in 1932, bequeathing the house as a home for elderly women. The house formerly had a front piazza with Doric columns on the first level and Ionic on the second.
