Tabby House Christmas Dressing

Those of you who are loyal blog readers will remember my description of the Tabby House many, many months ago. It is one of the most unusual houses in the Historic District in that its exterior walls are constructed entirely of tabby, a substitute for bricks used in the coastal regions from northern Florida to South Carolina in the 1700's and 1800's. Many foundations in the area (including ours) feature tabby but this is the only house to be constructed entirely in this manner. Some of our guests have asked us when the siding burned off. Interestingly, there was a serious fire at the Tabby House about five or six years ago resulting in extensive damage - but none to the exterior. Those three little pigs knew what they were doing - at least one of them anyway.
