J. Greene Sr., son Rob, daughter Annie and dog Rex (Circa 1907)
If you ever wanted to stay in an authentic Victorian house
then you are in luck!
As their last home,
Charles and Annie
built their Victorian home at the turn of the century. Mr. Greene was a civil war
veteran that lived here until his death in 1934 and the widowed Mrs. Greene
lived out her remaining years in the house.
Their oldest daughter, Miss
Jessie Greene was a Natchitoches schoolteacher and lived here until her
death in 1965. The house saw some bleak years as ownership changed hands
several times (including a fraternity house!)
The Greene house
brought back to itís original grandeur. The
exterior has the original virgin cypress shiplap that was hidden
under 50 years of asbestos siding. The
beautiful heart of pine floors were all here, but buried under
years of carpet and vinyl, also here was the original millwork and
2 sets of gorgeous 10í pocket doors. The 11í original beaded
board ceilings were revealed under modern ceiling tiles.
