Is This A Bridled or UnBridled Welcome To Kentucky!!!
Probably built or at least made to look like a bungalow in the first decades of the 20th century, this one and a half story wood frame dwelling was just across the border in Kentucky along Highway 127. Taken in Tennessee just south of the state line and below Cedar Knob, the area is within the corporate limits of Static, Tennessee. Most houses of this vintage feel are derelict or have been brushed over or obscured by plastic sidings of choice.
Please note that the primary facade is clad in wood siding that has been painted white. The porch posts are supported by brick pedestals, lower than one would expect, but definitely an addition to the dwelling’s porch structure. The most interesting feature is the asbestos siding, probably added in the 1940s/1950s, as it is on both side elevations of the house and probably in the back. The windows are old, if not original. We even find the sheet metal below the side windows an interesting adaptation to keep out the cold weather drafts.
With the laundry, this is truly a period piece, yet it represents Kentucky sooo well–at least this portion of the state.
