Historical and Architectural Information
The Morgan-Beaman-Winborne House is a beautiful historic home, dating back to at least 1810. Due to the burning of the Winton, NC courthouse in the past, the actual date is thought to be much earlier as it once started out as a side hall home around 1795. The framework is still visible through a framed window to display the original timber used to build this home including the ” L ” shape corner posts and corner bracing all pegged together.
This home is rich with documented history and was moved from Main Street in 1976 to its current location to save it from demolition. The house underwent a complete restoration during this time. This home was moved with one of the original chimneys intact. The restoration called for new chimneys throughout the house but still keeping the original chimney in the dining room. This house has the original heart pine flooring throughout, and the original trim from a restoration done by A.G. Jones, a well-known architect from Warren County. in 1850. Jones displayed hallmarks of the Greek Revival mode that suggest other work as his: these symmetrical, 2-story frame houses are distinguished by oversize bull’s-eye corner blocks at doors and windows, frequent use of triple windows and geometric tracery in transoms and sidelights, and also his favored spool-turned molding on the corners of the house. His work can also be seen in the front parlor and main foyer including a beautiful staircase. With heavy molded window and door surroundings located in the front parlor. Jones’s marbleizing can still be seen on the baseboards.
