This two-story wood-frame house was built circa 1856 by Phillip Schoppert, a native of South Carolina. The house is a hipped-roof variant of the I-house with rear shed rooms. One unusual feature of this house is its narrow windows. Edward Ustick bought the house in 1899 and added the porch.
In recent years, the house fell into disrepair because of it being unoccupied. The Greene County Historical Society purchased the property and performed basic renovations to prevent the house from being lost. The house was later sold to a private individual who is currently working to restore it.
This home is a contributing property to the Antebellum Homes in Eutaw Thematic Resource that was added to the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) on April 2, 1982.
This is a private residence – drive by only.
