Rubbish Tuesday - General Jubal Early Homeplace

click on photos to enlarge
Old Hollow Lane, Boones Mill

We happened to be driving by one day so we turned up Old Hollow Lane to see the home. In the top picture is what it looks like today, the bottom photo shows what it looked like back in 1995 when it was donated. I don't know if it is open for tours yet. There was a truck out front but the house was closed up and it looked like somebody lives there when we looked in the window as there was a dog running around inside.

  1. I even am impressed with the name, of course it seems the word Hollow always catches my eye in a happy way. As is this most beautiful make-over! Wow, what a lovely transformation!

  6. I'm glad you got a photo, I have not been there, it looks a lot like our house and probably has a log house under the siding if it is like ours. Jubal never surrendered and was a hard man to deal with at times.

  10. I'm always so pleased to some an old building that has been restored, especially if I had seen it in the before.

  11. I thought perhaps an historical society bought it and had it restored. At least someone restored it, its a beautiful home.

  12. There sure has been a lot of work done on the place in the last 20 years!!! It would be interesting to see the inside!

  13. Neat, nice to see this! Old Jubal was kind of unpopular at this time of year 150 years ago. Many Confederates blamed him for losing the valley to Sheridan.
