Octagon House in Shirley Gets Facelift
May 21, 2008 - Sponsored by donations from the Henry County Community Foundation, the Jane Ross Reeves Octagon Farmhouse has received a face-lift.
Built in 1879, the house was donated to the Jane Ross Reeves Octagon House Foundation by Mr. and Mrs. David Walden of Wilkinson. The house moved to its present location in Shirley in 1997.
Recent updates to the house include a fresh coat of exterior paint, with color highlighting the home’s ornamental detail. Latticework was also installed around the porch on all sides of the house.
The Reeves Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring the home, plans to use the home as a community center upon the project’s completion.
