The Bobbitt-Rogers House is located near Wilton, Granville County, North Carolina. It dates from about 1850 and is in Greek-Revival style. This old plantation house is 2-stories on a raised basement and is one room deep. It’s a timber frame house with weatherboarding. It has a metal hip roof with exterior chimneys. At the corners of the house are fluted pilasters extending from the top of the basement to the broad eaves. The high basement is stucco-covered brick. The 6/6 windows have crossetted surrounds and the original green shutters. The center window on the 2nd-story has window lights. The porch is wide and stretches the length of the 3-bay façade, with wide steps leading to the first level. The “tobacco-stick” rails extend between posts which have been cut-out; they rest on plinths and extend to capitals. A post-lintel pattern frames the two panel doors with window lights but no transom. There is a rear porch that I was unable to see. The house along with a tobacco manufactory (which I missed) and some other out buildings constitute the Bobbitt--Rogers House and Tobacco Manufactory District. National Register of Historic Places ID #88001262. The property was added to the NRHP list in 1988.
