Regarding Prichett House. From the National Register of Historic Places registration form:
The name Pritchett Residence was derived from the first long time owner Mrs. Belle Pritchett and her children who owned the property between 1903 and 1930. The character-defining features of the Pritchett Residence include: an asymmetrical floor plan with a low hipped roof; tall, narrow segmental arched window heads accented by corbelled brick crowns; a brick water table; broad overhanging eaves embellished by decorative cutout corner brackets; and a single-story front entry porch supported by tapered round columns. These exterior and all of the interior features such as the elaborate interior spindlework; ornate fireplace surrounds; carved newel post and turned wood stairway spindles; pocket doors and diamond shaped windows; remain intact.
