Looking for NC's Civil War - Allison-Deaver House

Located in Brevard, in Transylvania County, the Allison-Deaver house has a good bit of sad, War-time history associated with it. Considered the oldest standing frame house in western North Carolina, portions of it were built in 1815. According to the story, a group of bushwhackers attacked the house, looking for Capt. James Deaver. Instead of finding him,  they found his father, William Deaver, whom was shot and mortally wounded on the front porch. The house is open for tours May through October.

This photograph was taken in October 2008.
