Before I moved to the South, I imagined everyone lived in a house like this. I have lived in Tennessee, Alabama, and South Carolina and have never met anyone who lives in a house like this. Most of the antebellum houses that are still standing serve as businesses, or in this case as a church. This is currently the site of the Church of Latter Day Saints. There is a placard in front that states that it served as General Bragg's headquarters in July 1862.
I did a little research and found an old picture of this home. It looked a lot different when it was built in 1858 by Reese Bowen Brabson. The columns were added in the 30's by David Loveman, who owned D.B Loveman's department store in downtown Chattanooga.
