Glorious example of Victorian Queen Anne architecture, featuring a round shingled turret atop the two tiered facade. on a spacious corner lot just off the square in Kosciusko, MS. Beautifully maintained and updated with a spacious kitchen, this home will take your breath away from the moment you enter! The first floor features an entrance hall which widens beyond curved corners into a 15 foot wide stair hall that forms a central core for a parlor, sitting room, formal dining room, kitchen, first floor bedroom and bath, and a family room. The home's warmth is evident in the tongue-in-groove pine flooring, plaster walls, and classically decorated mantels and original doors. The home was built for David Lockett Brown and Virginia Miles Brown, and designed by architect M.E. Parmelee of Knoxville, TN.

    Love this one: from the fantastic kitchen with retro stove to the table under the stairs to the fireplace mantel with flower swags. The front door is phenomenal.

    Wow! What an incredible house. Love the kitchen stove. There’s some furniture I’d like to get my hands on as well.

    I love that two storey porch and the high ceilings inside. And isn’t this the town Ofrah Wintery comes from?

        I lived neighbors to this house for over 30 years. Kosciusko is the home of Oprah Winfrey, Jeffery Moore, and Clarence Harmon NFL football. This house would make a wonderful show place. Lots of history. The location is fabulous, on the corner of the old Natchez Trace trails over 1,000 years old that runs through the City of Kosciusko Ms.

    A little tree trimming would make a big difference!

    That kitchen is really something!?

    But what is going on with that turret/tower thing? It looks “off” for some reason. Was it part of the original design or was it just stuck on the roof years later?

      Looks original to me.

        In some communities, it was felt that all Queen Anne style homes must have some kind of turret or tower (a tower goes all the way to the ground while a turret doesn’t) This is not the first example from the South where it looks like a turret was just dropped on the roof indicating it is entirely ornamental and serves as a stylistic statement. It could have been added a few years after the original house was built or was added late in the design process. Too bad it was not an intregal part of the house as the round rooms of Queen Anne towers or turrets tend to be interesting with great views of the surroundings. The house itself appears to be relatively intact but is restrained in its ornamentation compared to some homes of the same period in this region. George F. Barber found many happy clients in Mississippi during his period of significance (1888 to 1908) and he did partner with several individuals over the years.

          The conical turret was definitely part of the original design. I highly doubt the architect would design that rounded part of the house to just sit there flat….it definitely had the turret. This is a gorgeous house, I’d live there in a heartbeat.

      One of the most common front elevations used in the Queen Anne style was a three bay design with a tower or turret on one end bay, a centered entrance bay, and a gable end topping the other end bay. Without the turreted roof, this would be a much more plain design.

      Definitely part of the original design. The architect would not have made that part of the porch rounded unless he was going to embellish it with that conical turret.

    The NRHP info mentions that the wife of the original owner, Virginia Niles (not Miles) aka Jennie Brown, grew up in an older home on this property that was moved to the rear of this lot when this house was built. Years later, it was moved again to the lot of her brother’s home, where it was remodeled into his law offices. This is one of a few Niles family homes in town that survive and are on the NRHP.

    Also, the architect mentioned, Martin E. Parmalee, was an early partner of Knoxville’s George F. Barber. I like this one also, especially its worn, somewhat shabby condition. Needs a little work (not too much) and a bit of paint, is all.

    I love this house with its curved porches and walls. The staircase is beautiful and the exterior is really appealing to me.
