Known as Mill Farm, this circa-1710 mill and farmhouse was restored over 20 years. The water mill, which had once been used to grind corn for the whole neighborhood, is now a one-bedroom guest apartment. The main house got an addition with modern conveniences like an updated kitchen. Read the full story via the link in our bio.

Historic Oakleigh was built in 1833 in Mobile, Alabama and such a gorgeous and rare antebellum home! It survived the Civil War by the lady of the house declaring the home as part of England. We had a fun time sight seeing in Mobile with @housepluslove tonight!

Ahhh the trees of @coronadohistorichomes . This neighborhood always impresses me in one way or another. Sometimes I'm impressed by how many homes still suck, or how high the prices are... but also by the amount of people on their front porch, by the eclectic and unique design and decor of each home. And I'm ALWAYS impressed by the amount of dog poop on the front porches. Or is that just the house I'm showing right now ? See my story for details. .

Restoring and remodeling this beautiful historic home! Stay tuned for progress! #LLID #remodel #historichomes #repairs #customdesign
The kitchen floors are being refinished next week, so we are doing as much of the painting as we can before then! Greg is standing where the fridge will be, and all the new cabinetry and stove will go along that back wall, and an island where the painters tape is outlined on the floor! It’s feeling so close, just a few more weeks!

One thing I love about historic architecture is the attention to detail. Many buildings weren’t just functional, but beautiful too. Found this beauty walking to Central Market this morning.

"Rising from ancient magnolia trees, the Woodruff-Fontaine House stands as a reminder of an era long gone.  This beautiful French-Victorian mansion was built in 1870 along "Millionaires Row." in Memphis.  The mansion, home to two prominent Memphis families, was deeded to the city in 1936 and stood vacant for several years.  The Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities rescued the house in 1962 and restored it to its former splendor."
.

Amos Woodruff and his brother came to Memphis from Rahway, New Jersey in 1845 to expand their carriage-making business. His brother returned home, but Amos remained and became a very successful entrepreneur. In addition to his carriage-making business, he was involved in two banks, a railroad, an insurance company, a hotel, a cotton compress firm and a lumber company.  In 1870, Woodruff purchased land adjoining the Goyer House for $12,000 and began construction on a 5-story French-Victorian mansion located in "Millionaire's Row", on the outskirts of Memphis. Amos Woodruff, his wife Phoebe and four children occupied the mansion from 1871 until 1883.  Old Tax Records have determined that this "grand house" cost him $40,000 to build in 1870.  Amos and Phoebe raised their four children in the home - Sallie, Mollie, Frank and Cora.  After 1883, the Woodruffs moved into the Fontaine's old  house at 103 Madison Avenue.
.

The Fontaine's became famous for their lavish parties held at their home.  One political fundraiser with over 2,000 guests was in honor of Adlai Stevenson, VP Candidate for Grover Cleveland.  Red Japanese lanterns lit the lawns and John Philip Sousa's band performed. Tennessee governors, visiting governors, and President Grover Cleveland,  attended parties here.

Bring grounded and centered is important to being healthy. For me seeing the beauty of nature around me helps. Even if this is just a small historic farm in the middle of a bunch of neighborhoods. Beauty can be found anywhere sometimes you just have to open your mind and heart. #hemphealth #demingyoungfarm #historichomes

The James Lee House, also known as the Harsson-Goyer-Lee House, is a historic house at 690 Adams Avenue in Memphis, Tennessee, United States. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, together with the adjacent Woodruff-Fontaine House. The two houses are included in the Victorian Village historic district.
.

The 8,100-square-foot home was constructed by William Harsson in 1848. Harsson's daughter, Laura, married Charles Wesley Goyer, who bought the house in 1852. Goyer had it expanded by the architecture firm of Edward Culliatt Jones and Matthias H. Baldwin in 1871, after seeing their work in designing the neighboring Woodruff-Fontaine House.
.

James Lee, a riverboat captain who had been educated at Princeton University, bought the house in 1890. In 1925 it became the James Lee Memorial Art Academy, a predecessor of the Memphis College of Art (formerly the Memphis Academy of Art). The city of Memphis took ownership in 1929. After the art school moved to a new location in 1959, the house was vacant for many years.
.

In 2012 the empty house was purchased by new private owners. The following year, a $2 million construction and renovation project began, converting the house into a luxury bed and breakfast. The city of Memphis provided a property tax abatement to encourage its renovation. The bed and breakfast opened for business in April 2014.

The 8,100-square-foot home was constructed by William Harsson in 1848. Harsson's daughter, Laura, married Charles Wesley Goyer, who bought the house in 1852. Goyer had it expanded by the architecture firm of Edward Culliatt Jones and Matthias H. Baldwin in 1871, after seeing their work in designing the neighboring Woodruff-Fontaine House. . James Lee, a riverboat captain who had been educated at Princeton University, bought the house in 1890. In 1925 it became the James Lee Memorial Art Academy, a predecessor of the Memphis College of Art (formerly the Memphis Academy of Art). The city of Memphis took ownership in 1929. After the art school moved to a new location in 1959, the house was vacant for many years. . In 2012 the empty house was purchased by new private owners. The following year, a $2 million construction and renovation project began, converting the house into a luxury bed and breakfast. The city of Memphis provided a property tax abatement to encourage its renovation. The bed and breakfast opened for business in April 2014. .
