The house is quite significant historically. It was originally built in 1838 by Roger Barton, an attorney who allegedly never lost a case. The columns holding up the front portico are said to have been salvaged from a now-demolished antebellum home named ''Cloverland'' that stood 6 miles outside of Holly Springs. Additionally, during work in the dining room, the sellers found a Civil War era tunnel under the house that is believed to have connected to other buildings in town used to evade Union forces and for hiding valuables. The tunnel is now sealed and closed off.
The following will stay with the property at no additional value: the peacock fireplace screens, the freezer in the laundry room, the playhouse shelf & wooden bed in pink bedroom upstairs, the gazebo, the metal arch off back porch, work surfaces & shelving in the workshop, & the zero-turn mower.
