Wisteria House c1789
This was considered a mansion for a family then.
It is much smaller than my home.
Wisteria House (101 S. Loudoun St.) Originally built circa 1789, this house was expanded. Issac Parkins, who owned Out‐lot #49 on which most of Fort Loudoun was built, also owned a mill and seemed to deal in real estate. He consequently sold this Loudoun St. in‐lot to William Russell who enlarged it. His son, a veteran of the War of 1812, later occupied the home. It is a beautifully picturesque building when the wisteria is in bloom! source here.
