(Evander Gregg House) Red Doe is a one-story, frame farmhouse on a raised brick basement foundation built ca. 1840 for Evander Gregg. The house is rectangular with a central hall plan and a two-room ell on the rear. The low-pitched gable roof has a shed extension sheltering the fašade’s porch. The fašade has six solid octagonal wooden piers on stuccoed brick bases carrying the porch roof. A veranda with stuccoed brick piers and a new wooden stair rising to its center, which spans the fašade, is recessed behind these piers. The basement, beneath and behind the veranda, is brick sheathed in stucco that is scored to simulated stone. Red Doe has single exterior brick chimneys with stuccoed bases and plaster necking bands on the north and south elevations. Single windows flank the chimney on each of these elevations. Red Doe was built with a heavy timber braced frame. According to family tradition, Red Doe was built for Evander Gregg when he was eighteen years old. Several outbuildings are located on the property, including a small frame building that appears to have been used as an office or store. Additionally, many trees on the property date to the building of Red Doe. Listed in the National Register October 29, 1982.
