Before and After, Part 2
Two of the three remaining 18th century houses at Port Tobacco (Chimney House on the left and Stagg Hall on the right) are the subject of today's before and after photographs. It is difficult to take photos of these two houses now because of the dense vegetation in the front yards.
There are a few differences in the architecture of both houses. At the time of the black and white photo, Chimney House had two front doors and was presumably a duplex, and Stagg Hall has a front porch. The older photo also shows that the well (the caged area in front of Chimney House) was in a slightly different location than it is now. Although barely visible in the color photo above, the outbuilding adjacent to Stagg Hall is also still standing, as are several others.
