    Built by Matthew Hendricks. Original home of Mr. and Mrs. Matthew Hendricks and later their daughter, Mrs. J.I. (Bert) Reece. Mr. Hendricks saw an old farm house while he was serving our country during the Civil War near Manassas, VA. He took the exact measurements and when he came home erected his own house. The house is a two-story frame house made of longleaf yellow pines which were grown on his farm. They were carried to a sawmill on an oxcart. The planks had to be dried and hand planed before being using in the house. There is a chimney at each end of the house and another one on the south wall of the huge kitchen. The front has a long porch supported by four posts that Mr. Hendricks designed. The space above has a banister. While the exterior remained well-preserved from his painting of it, he never let paint, varnish or stain be used on his lovely hand-dressed pine interior. Until a few years ago, each room contained one or more pieces of his artistic furniture made of walnut and held firmly by wooden pegs making for a rare and beautiful home atmosphere. The old cupboards, sideboards, plantation desk, clock and such furnishing remained until the old home was sold several years ago and the old furniture passed to members of the family.
