    This is an odd little home. The trim around the front door is an old design while the rest of the home is closer to 1919 or thereabouts. So did this start out as a Greek Revival and receive a mega makeover around 1919? Or did someone give it that beautiful door trim/surround from an older home if this was built c. 1919?

      I was wondering the same thing myself.

      Well both, it seems. The original build date of the Sellars-Earle house is estimated to be c.1880 according to the NRHP listing for the Carr Historic District with a remodel in the first decade of the 20th century and another restyling later (c.1940 according to the NRHP copy). This second remodel included the Greek Revival entrance salvaged from an older house in the area.

      From the NRHP listing form:
      “A substantial remodeling was made in the 1910s and again by the Earles, who are thought to have reused decorative elements such as the Greek Revival entry from a house in Fulton identified as the Paschal House.”

    I used to live 10 miles from Fulton, kentucky. Bought my own historic home there for a good price. Most houses there are very cheap. There isn’t many jobs there, but the weather is decent, aside from the humidity. Fulton is a shady little town, however… with an even shadier police force.

      could/would you expound? or point to a source on that?
      I am looking to buy my next residence, and I like this but need to know more.

    Antebellum threw me with a build date of 1919 or 1880. Antebellum is pre 1861. Either way, for less than $40K, could be done up well.

    I agree with the collective assessment about this house that commenters have come to. My first reaction was to the Greek Revival doorway trim, the seemingly very old porch columns and particularly the sawn balusters on the porch that in my neighborhood, at least, go back to the 1850’s, if not earlier. Thanks to the ever-reliable CharlestonJohn for getting the actual facts upon which all our other observations and hypotheses could then clearly be hung and made made sense of!

    I too noticed some inconsistencies in the house form despite the porch and entry looking correct for a Greek Revival style house. The roof and sides look very much in the Craftsman/Bungalow profile rather than Greek Revival which would have been somewhat taller and would have had a triangular pediment shaped gable likely with return ends. In summary, this unique combination of details still looks like a comfortable home inside with its traditional Southern center hall floorplan. If it were mine, I’d stay with the Greek revival theme and perhaps add square posts and a pedimented porch on the side entry. (assuming there is one…barely visible in one photo)

      Good suggestions that I would follow if I owned this house. Why not go with the oldest and most centrally visible elements when they are this fine?
