Description

''The Fisher House''Own a piece of history, on the National Register of Historic places. This house was built in two stages. The first stage, built in 1834, is now the brick rear section, and was probably meant for a hall or parlor, and faces east towards Floyds Fork and the railroad. This is where you will pull up to the home.The two-story frame section, the side that faces Old Taylorsville Road, was built in 1879. At this time the house was re-oriented to face Old Taylorsville Road but we still enter from the original house today, from the original entrance facing Taylorsville Road. We envision, at one time, there was a driveway on the other side of the house which became the front where you will find another porch and a bay window that is east-lake style trim and projesupported by brackets above the windows. The brick wing could have been built by John Fisher or his son Robert Fisher in about 1834 or 1835. In 1834 the Fishers purchased the land on Floyds Fork, including a mill which had existed since 1823. John Fisher died in 1845 and Robert Fischer continue to operate the flour mill and the sawmill until his death in 1850. In 1854 the house was purchased from Robert Fisher's estate by Dr. Stephen H. Reid. The Fisher family name was given to the small village of Fisherville. Robert Fisher owned the land on both sides of Taylorsville Road where Fisherville grew by the time of his death in 1850. There is an old root cellar on the grounds, which also serves as a storm shelter, located to the left when you're facing the kitchen door. Almost 5 acres of land comes with this home. There is also an inground pool and the remains of an old well. To the far right of the property, past the garage building among the acreage, if you peeknbehind a fence and some overgrown shrubs, you can get a glimpse of the old family cemetery. There is also a hidden room in between the kitchen and the dining room that can be accessed through the cabinet to the right of the stove. It is thought that this hidden room may have been part of an underground railroad at one time. Since purchasing, the current owner has given the home a new roof, new furnace, new HVAC, new paint, new box gutters, refurbished & painted exterior, a new full bathroom and many other updates and changes as well as paint in the Interior as well.
