When I saw this house this morning, I recognized it immediately because I fell in love with it three years ago! Not only did I fall in love with it, but I wrote an article about the history and found a cool old video about it. You can read that article here. That green wainscoting is original paint! The Historic Reverend Speight House was built in 1821. It is located on 3.15 acres in Stantonsburg, North Carolina.
