    I have always wondered if that was in fact a real house. I am glad to see it was…and I love how they went with a yellow instead of white like most houses are that have the tall posts on the porch.

            hello…i am curious about something..although i have done some research..it appears that this house and the house used in the movie the color purple..seem very much alike in their appearance. then, after some further research..it appears not to be so. however…its kinda strange to me that the house used in the movied..the color purple..was originally owned by a man named james bennett..who was actually killed (shot) on the porch by a yankee soldier in 1865. weird coincidence that the house used in the color purple was owned by a man named bennett…and the character in fried green tomatoes was named frank bennett..and the houses look so much alike. your thoughts?
