Twin Oaks, once called "White Cottage", sits well-back and elevated above an old regional thoroughfare, now HomochittoStreet. Extensive lawns, traditional plantings and old trees (particularly the pair of old oaks which give the house its name)enhance the site. Twin Oaks achieves a statement of restrained, but articulate, monumentality through deft siting, sense ofscale, and detail rather than through overwhelming size or complication of design. It is a large masonry structure (a gabledcottage inform) with dormers at the front roof face. The front is stuccoed and scored to resemble cut stone in a more formalgesture. The front facade falls into the Greek Revival period stylistically, a popular style in the lower Mississippi Valleyfrom 1830-1850. Its architectural signifcance in the area has earned it a designation on the National Register of HistoricPlaces.
The home is currently a Bed & Breakfast and events venue for weddings, tours, and special occasions.
