Abercrombie House

This house, I think was the Abercrombie house near Woodstock. A note said it was built in the 1860s. My great uncle John Rafas Hunter (1870-1940)'s daughter Emma Viola Hunter married Andrew Joseph Abercrombie and this is the house they lived in for a while before they moved to Birmingham for Andrew to work in the steel mills.

I found the back porch interesting. When I was growing up south Marietta this type of porch was not unusual. Also, not unusual to see the lady of the house to come out on the porch with a dishpan full of soapy water and heave it out into the back yard.
