The McKinnon House, circa 1902

     This house was built by lumber magnet L.T. McKinnon. Many historical pictures exist of this home and its original owners.
     The Hipped roof with lower cross gables defines this home as Queen Anne and the seventeen Corinthian columns give it Free Classic details.. You will delight in the white Georgia marble front steps and the solid wood double front doors of the entry. Many of the light fixtures which were gas have been converted to electric yet still retain their period significance.

     Costumed docents will be in each room to answer your questions. Music will be in the air and you might even catch a glimpse of carolers as they stroll down the sidewalk.
