Property Description
hought to have been built in 1807, The Fountain is a two-story frame house with a full attic. The house was expanded between 1865-70 with a kitchen and dining room ell. Alterations made during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries have given the home Federal, Greek Revival and Queen Anne interior and exterior features.

The Fountain was home to five generations of the prominent Davenport-Jones family. Currently with four bedrooms and two baths, the site includes a brick well house/dairy built sometime between 1865-70. The original basement kitchen is one of only a few such nineteenth century kitchens surviving in western North Carolina.

The Fountain has suffered deterioration over the years but many significant repairs and updates have been made and the house is livable. The home has well water, a septic system, radiator hot water system, and central air conditioning. The property is individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The house is in a rural setting and the backyard leads to a stream, but it is also in close proximity to schools, shopping and other amenities.
