Misc. Notes
1. The Durham Sanders House (1829):
Along with his father Henry Sanders, Durham Sanders was the builder of the "Durham Sanders House" in 1829. The historical portion of the two-story brick house is a T plan,with a gable roof and four brick chimneys. The walls are 4 bricks thick, as are all interior walls. The foundation is large limestone rocks. On the front of the house is a wooden balcony accessible from an upstairs doorway. The balcony extends over the front entrance porch, which is constructed of a rock foundation and supported by four brick and rock piers. Under jack arches are 9 over 6 paned windows. Under a transom is the front door which opens into a wide entrance hall. A spiral stairway ascends to the second floor. Upstairs is a bedroom, with two large attics on each side. On the first floor are bedrooms, 16x18 with 12 ft ceilings, both with fireplaces and decorative mantelpieces with starburst patterns. Each rooms has 7" base molding and 4" chair rail. doorways are 40" wide. During the 1940's, the exterior front porch and balcony were added and the house was painted white. The kitchen has a build0in-wall cupboard, and a large fireplace, (the fireplace has been closed, but contains all the orginial bricks). The house embodies distinctive characteristics of three different architectural types, Early Republic, Federal, and Colonial Georgian. It is not know where Durham Sanders acquired the design for his home. The Kentucky Heritage council designated the house a Kentucky Landmark and deemed it worthy of preservation. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, and the property is a Kentucky Sesquicentennial Farm. The Durham Sanders farm is now owned by the 5th generation of Sanders', John and Karen Sanders. Their children are the 6th generation to live in the house. Durham Sanders was active in Taylor county political affairs, was appointed as one of its first magistrates; served as Justice of the Peace in the 1850's, and as sheriff in 1851. [127]
