Historical Information:
The house across the street was once the kitchen building for the Hellams House and was later turned into a store. Another structure further down Hellams Rd. was also associated with the house. When the current owner and her husband moved to the house, the porch only extended over the gable; they expanded it in the 1980-1989 to the current two-story porch.
