CARROLLTON PILGRIMAGE SERIES: Mathairs Feith


img_1509Although not a historic home, Mathairs Feith was constructed to pay homage to Carrollton’s historic architecture. Built in 2013, the home was built to resemble a dog-trot, cottage-style home. Mathairs Feith is a wood-framed house on a standing slab with a vaulted great room, 10-foot ceilings and deep crown molding. Throughout the house, architectural elements brought into the home echo Carroll County’s long history. The front doors were salvaged from the old home demonstration kitchen at the Mississippi State Extension Office in Carroll County. The back door is from the old Colvin home in North Carrollton and the side door is from the old Berris Johnson home in Carrollton. A claw-foot bathtub was gifted by Mina Gee and the mantels came from the Vance House. The church pews displayed in the home came from Zion Chapel Church in McCarley. Mathairs Feith, Irish for mother’s gift, is owned by Bill and Judi Gillespie.
