    It’s that time of year again in Enterprise when the Christmas decorations and holiday finery are at their best during the upcoming annual Christmas tour. Places to visit show what a love of history many of us have and want to preserve for the future.

      This year, Enterprise will feature the log home of George and Pam Belvin; the Greek Revival /Queen Anne cottage “Aquinasaw; and the log home core of the Millbrook Plantation that served as the original home and clinic to Dr. Ascher Wolverton until the time of the 1860s and after the Civil War.  

     Also open is historic St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, Confederate Cemetery, and Creekside Mercantile Antique Shop (restored old metal shop).

 

Belvin Home

     The log home of George and Pam Belvin located on County Rd. 371 (north exit going to interstate 59 from Enterprise) is an amazing work of perseverance that saved three log cabin “pens” from destruction in Tennessee. It took nine years of planning and two years to reconstruct the three cabins that were transported to Enterprise in the mid 1990s.

    The original logs date from the early 1800s and great care was taken in reconstruction to preserve the logs. Two of the “pens” are used in the front part of the home and one at the rear. They are connected together by wood lap siding around the sides and rear and protected with a large front porch overhang at the front. The welcoming front door is made from chestnut wood that was saved from a scrap pile and the hardware is traditional hammered metal.

 

Acquinasaw, circa 1820-1830
