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 enslaved people, the largest group of enslaved people owned by a single family 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.
