James T. Butler House, Old Natchez Trace, Tishomingo, Tishomingo County, MS



Significance: The James Butler House, built in 1913, is an example of the persistence of nineteenth century plan types and stylistic details in the southwestern part of Tishomingo County, Mississippi. The central hall plan used in the house had its greatest popularity during the first half of the nineteenth century while the turned porch columns and brackets were of a type extensively used during the later part of that century. The dwelling was the home of James T. Butler (born 1855), who was Tishomingo County's oldest citizen at the time of his death in 1957.
