POPE-WATTS HOME, Echols Avenue
Crowning the District, this beautiful brick home was built by Leroy Pope soon after he bought most of the land that was Twickenham in 1809. In 1814 Andrew Jackson was entertained here with a lavish dinner. The glorious portico was added by George Steele for Dr. Charles Patton ca. 1842. His descendants retain it to this day. Drawn by Leon Trice Hinds in 1978.
