The Main House
The Mesinna Family; Antone E., Catherine, Fank, Guy, Vivion
William Floyd built this Classic Revival house in 1886 for Frank and Anthony Messina. Anthony and Catherine Messina lived in the house and raised their nine children. It remained in the family for 100 years. The house is Classic revival with a wide center hall which allows access to all of the rooms. The walls were originally plaster on cypress lath. The floors are heart pine. In 2000, Innes and Ouida Tartt renovated the house, restoring the wrap-around porch and adding a dormer for the loft bedroom. Descendants of the Messina family have shared the photo and history of this historic home.
