WATKINS-RHETT HOME, Adams Street

Elegantly Italianate, this home incorporates a ca. 1826 brick house in the structure completed ca. 1857 by James L. Watkins for his son's family. During the Civil War it was headquarters for Gen. John A. Logan. After the War the family of the present owner acquired it. One of the celebrated parties in the Twickenham District was held here in 1892, honoring a world famous cow, Lily Flagg.
