Regarding Swaim House.
…According to local tradition the house was built in the 1840's for a doctor and served as his residence and office. In the late nineteenth century, the building was purchased by J.M. Swaim, a prominent Chapel Hill citizen and blacksmith. The house is the oldest brick residence in the town and a rare example in Marshall County and the surrounding area of a brick Greek Revival cottage. The quality of its design and craftsmanship can be seen in its well proportioned and detailed entrance portico and corner pilasters as well as its interior shouldered window and door surrounds.
