    I grew up in this house. “Linden Hill” named because it was flanked by 2 Linden trees. Now only one. Up until the 1970’s the porch was wood and it went the full length of the front. My Uncle did the remodel in the 1970’s.
    My grandmother sold the house in the early 1990’s. She was in her 80’s and it was to much for her to take care of. Beautiful home but it does have a live-in-ghost, we all fondly called Bulah .

    Posted in 2014, not sold but on/off market. Moving to front page because new photos and I finally got around to updating it.

    If I’m interested in a house, I usually also look up the town on City Data. I was through Holly Springs in 2014, there specifically to look at a house I was interested in. Beautiful town in many ways, quite a bit rundown, though, but it’s an iconic Mississippi town with some great houses like this one.

    Charlotte Gatewood Nairmore,

    Your family’s house is lovely. Wonderful gas light fixtures.

    I remember my family selling my grandmother’s home in Westport, Connecticut. It was very hard to see it sold, so I can understand how you may feel.

    Again, a lovely home.

    This is a fine house, livable upon move in. Opportunities galore to put one’s own antebellum stance on it. It’s a steal at the asking price. Obviously a loved and cared for home.

    Don’t know Mississippi Dude, but as a resident of Holly Springs, I would certainly not call it run down. Ther is a vibrant historic district, and active civic and commercial industry in the region. This ain’t NYC, but that’s not why anyone chooses to live here. Lately we have had a significant influx of folks moving in (ourselves included), because of the towns beauty and relaxed lifestyle. Most of the historic homes have sold-this is one of the few remaining. Reason is that the location is a few blocks off the beaten path, and if I recall, you have to walk through one BR to get to another. That being said, it’s a great house with fantastic natural light, and you can’t beat the price.

      Well, I certainly know that parts of Holly Springs are vibrant, while other parts are run down. But I didn’t mean to disparage Holly Springs in the least. It was one of the favorite stops on my first trip to Mississippi and if I get a chance to visit it again, I will. I moved from the desert of southern New Mexico and bought a historic house in Columbus, MS about a year and a half ago. Don’t regret my decision to become a Mississippi Dude. And I’m glad to hear that the homes there are selling, and I hope with your and others’ help Holly Springs will shine once more.
