Own a piece of early mountain agricultural heritage, less than a 5-minute drive from the thriving mountain community of Brevard and its award-winning “Main Street” downtown area!

Built c.1846 with a large ell addition in 1860, the historic Elizur Patton House is believed to be the second oldest house in Transylvania County, postdating the Deavor House which has been restored by local preservationists as a museum.  The house is an integral part of the early agricultural heritage of Transylvania County and its vernacular architecture. Located in the Pisgah Forest Township of Transylvania County, it is only five minutes from downtown Brevard and is sited upon a rise immediately west of a gentle eastward slope toward the nearby Davidson River. The Patton family was one of the more prominent farming families in the region.

The Elizur Patton House is a two-story frame, three-bay house with a full length one-story attached front portico and a two-story rear ell with a metal roof. It has three chimneys, two of which are at the gable ends. One of the gable end chimneys is comprised of stone with brick and the other is cut stone. The house’s main distinguishing interior feature is a series of curvilinear walls in the rear ell of the house, which were more characteristic of sophisticated houses in Charleston, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. Now, only three of these are still extant in the county. The property also includes an older workshop of undetermined age.

The Elizur Patton 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.
