A showplace in its day, the Jones-Everett House, later named ”Swamplawn” was built in 1857 by the highly-reputable Warren County builder Alfred Gamaliel Jones. Fortunately, the finely crafted exterior details have been preserved. The distinctive exterior cornice and corner pilasters that frame the house are in-tact as is the stunning double leaf front door with 3-part transoms over paneled sidelights.

The interior floor plan has wide center hall dividing 4 rooms of unequal size upstairs and down. A rear one-story shed, incorporated at the time the house was built, gives the first floor a commodious three-rooms deep plan, not typical of Greek Revival style. The house is located in rural Martin County surrounded by farm and wood land. No HVAC.

The historic Jones-Everett House is under protective covenants held by Preservation North Carolina. Please contact Dawn Williams at dwilliams@presnc.org or 919-832-3652 x221 to request a copy of these covenants.
