Description

The residence of Tennison Cheshire, an antebellum planter, is one of only a few unaltered Federal style houses in the county. By 1850, Cheshire owned over 1600 acres and 34 slaves, making him one of the largest slaveholders in the county. The center stair details reflect Owen Biddle's The Young Carpenter's Assistant (1805); similar woodwork appears in the Harbin-Long house and Johnson family house.
