There were only a handful of pictures with this listing, but I remember this house quite well and found some old ones from another time I featured it a few years back. The Gillette House was built in 1908. It is located on .87 acres in Greenwood, Mississippi. The home was designed to look like a showboat. The house features a large wrap around porch, hardwood floors, transom windows, original mantels, leaded glass windows, picture rails and claw foot tubs.
