Twickenham Tables

John Hunt Morgan-Wiginton Home, Franklin Street

Built ca. 1824, this originally Federal house is where John Hunt Morgan of Civil War fame was born. In the 1850*8, the Stephen Neal family added the classic Italian Revival facade and tower. Mr. and Mrs. Daniel L. Wiginton acquired the property around 1985 and have refurbished it elegantly. Landscaping is now being completed. Sketched by Lee Harless, Jr. in 1979.

About the Morgan house:

"I read endless stories....propped against the front window -mostly Kipling but Joel Chandler Harris as well, and Nathaniel Hawthorne. The deep window ledge provided a grand reading nook."
