Regarding Enoch Wright House. The family occupied log dwellings on the property until Enoch Wright built the house in 1815/16. The house was designed for two families with a kitchen at each end. Bricks for the house were formed and fired on site, as was commonly done years ago. The harder bricks were used on the exterior walls; the softer ones were used to construct the inside walls. Each of the home's 12 rooms has its own fireplace. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 24, 2007, reference number 07000466.
Today the house is operated as a museum operated by the Peters Creek Historical Society.
