Contributed by Philip M. PRICE Probably built in the late 1700's or early 1800's. John Smith IV (b abt 1710. d abt 1802) m 10-4-1734 to Abigail Commander ,b. 1117, d abt 1742).probably built.the home. I walked thru this home in the 1980's. It was straight and plumb, built with hand-hewn hart pine beams, with bored pegs to hold the beams together. It had two massive interior chimneys made out of hand made bricks. What struck me as unusual was that there were no rotten boards or beams, and how straight aUthe corners were. The house sat near the railroad and was probably burned down by vagrants more than 10 years ago. I remember the front porch different from the photo, perhaps it had deteriorated and had been torn off. Dal Fore, a decendent who lives within sight of the Old Smith Home, sent me this picture,
