Bethania in Forsyth County, North Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
In 2003, the historic house, then in an unstable condition, was purchased by the Town of Bethania and relocated to its current site. Stone from the original site was saved for reuse and the original interior woodwork was recovered, purchased and reinstalled.
Our historic house faces Bethania Road in a position appropriate for a streetscape of the time. During the 18th and early 19th century, buildings in our town were placed adjacent to the sidewalk, with no front lawns. It was not until later in the 1800s that houses would be pulled back on the lot to showcase a small front yard.
Erected by Town of Bethania.
