Vaughan House (Private Residence)

In 1896, Judge Josiah Carr Eggleston and his wife Julia Plummer Eggleston bought this house, built by Andrew C. Vaughan in the late 1880s. The Egglestons later added the front porch and columns. In the 1930s, the house and the Egglestons themselves provided the inspiration for a series of children’s stories called “Those Plummer Children,” written by Christine Noble Govan. Long out of print, the books follow the adventures of the white Plummer children and their black playmates, the children of the family cook.
