D'Evereux, built in 1840 to the Greek Revival style designs of the architect Hardy, was the home of the St. John Elliots, a family famous for their hospitality. Their home was the scene of many parties and balls. On such occasions the entry hall doubled as a ballroom. The long, narrow space, stretching from front to back of the house and linking the 2 huge porches provided ample space for line dances, called dances and left room to spare.

Over the years small changes were made to the house, closets built into bedrooms, the rear porch partially enclosed. Behind the house a carriage house was built with rooms over it. A separate small servants' house burned down. These changes are recorded on these drawings.

The prints you are purchasing are crisp, high resolution black line copies on white bond paper. Any photos shown in the description are informational only and are NOT included in your purchase.
