Tocaland, is a very intact example of an antebellum residence with Greek Revival elements set on a raised basement. Tocaland, ca. 1854, is a one-and-one-half story, weatherboarded frame residence with a lateral gabled roof with cross-gabled pedimented porch. The home is double pile with a central hall floor plan. Four 8-foot high stuccoed granite piers support a pedimented front porch that has a tripartite window in the gable end. The porch is supported by four paneled wooden pillars, pilasters, and has a plain balustrade. The fašade fenestration is a central door with sidelights and transom flanked by two single, six-over-six, shuttered windows. The door and windows in the basement story are aligned with those of the first story. The end gables have boxed cornices and two interior brick chimneys pierce the rear roof slope. A concrete stairway with a cast-iron balustrade on the fašade and a central rear addition are modern alterations. Listed in the National Register December 6, 1984.
