Tally Ho Historic Home

Acadian cottage style architecture, built in the 1800’s.


Tally Ho was owned by Jean Fleming, a free man of color, sometime before 1855. In 1848, it was purchased by John Murrell of Virginia and has remained in his family since. The current house is what was used as the overseer’s home, after the main house burned in 1945. It is a raised Acadian cottage with Classical Revival influences. *The house is privately owned, and is not open to the public. It can be viewed from the road.
