RESTORING CORINTH'S DUNCAN HOUSE: A continuing update on the rehabilitation of the historic (circa 1858) home at 810 Polk St., Corinth, Mississippi, which served as headquarters to several Civil War generals.

This picture of the Duncan House shows the home in the early 1880s, and is taken from its earliest known photo. This image first appeared in "The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine" and later in "Battles and Leaders," along with photos of other Civil War homes in Corinth at that time. Unfortunately, the giant bushes seen here are hiding the home’s iconic front windows.
Now that the moving phase is complete, we can begin the difficult task of recreating the Duncan House’s original appearance.
