Holiday Tour of Homes to Feature The Davenport House
The Aces Youth Home (ACES), will hold its second annual Holiday Tour of Homes in Jasper. Presented by Piedmont Mountainside, this year's tour will take place on Saturday, December 7th from 12:30 pm until 5:00 pm. The tour this year will feature five decorated homes down South Main Street and a final stop which includes an open house at the Southern Appalachian Folk School in the former Sharptop Arts building.
Our featured home for this week will include The Davenport Group home now owned by Rachel Davenport. The home is located at 634 South Main Street. Rachel purchased the home in 2018, and the home is currently used as The Davenport Group of Keller Williams Pickens office.
The home at 1165 South Main Street was built in the 1865. The lot was originally part of a 160-acre tract and was purchased in 1854 by John Richards. The garage, kitchen and dining room were added in the 1950’s and was owned by Mr. and Ms. J. S. Darnell. Maxine Moore purchased the home in 2003 and sold the home in 2007 to Robert Keller and Kathleen Keller. Extensive renovations were done on the home between 2007 and 2013. Rachel is very excited about the opportunity to show off this beautiful historic home on the Tour!
