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.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO BUILD: These plans are not complete architectural drawings as might be required by your local permitting agency and do not contain all the structural, waterproofing and other details and information necessary for construction. But your local builder or architect should be able to adapt these drawings and add to them as necessary. What they do provide is accurate design information about a REAL historic house, not a pseudo-historic tract house as you will find in the house plan magazines on your supermarket shelf.
