Restoring Taylor House in Drew County is subject of today’s CALS Legacies & Lunch Lecture

Tommy Jameson, lead architect for the restoration of the Taylor House (among many other restoration works in Arkansas), will discuss the past, present, and future of the dogtrot-style home built in 1846 at Hollywood Plantation in Drew County, one of the few remaining examples of Arkansas vernacular architecture built before the Civil War.

The program takes place today (June 5) at noon in the Darragh Center at the Central Arkansas Library System Main Library in Library Square.

The house was donated in 2012 to the University of Arkansas at Monticello (UAM) for historical research and interpretation, and UAM began restoring the house and adjacent grounds to how they appeared in the earliest known photographs.
