Twickenham Tables is a cookbook that was published by the Twickenham Historic Preservation District Association in 1988. In addition to hundreds of recipes, it contains drawings of Twickenham houses and scenes by local artists such as Lee Harless, L. Trice Hinds and Albert Lane, as well as descriptions of the houses.
Erskine-McCown Home, Franklin Street
This house was built for the Erskine family in 1818. Originally constructed as a Federal half-house with detached kitchen, the house's right half was added before 1860. The upstairs blue window panes are a unique feature. Owners Mr. and Mrs. James R. McCown completely restored and remodeled the house in 1985. The servants quarters in the back are in excellent repair, as well. Sketched by Lee Harless, Jr. in 1987.
