The Wood House
The Wood House sits next door to the Murphy House which I showed yesterday. Also a part of the Park Avenue Historic District near downtown, the house dates back to 1902 and was used as a winter residence for the Wood family from Ohio who came south to enjoy the warmer climate. From 1924 to 1946 the house served as a manse (the minister's home) for the First Presbyterian Church. It is now used as law offices. I took these pictures just a few minutes apart and the sky really was that blue. It got a little washed out in the first photo because I was standing in the shade and the sun was directly behind the roof. I made sure to get some of the Spanish moss hanging from the tree branches in the second shot to give it that "southern" feel.
