Marker Text This 20-room home was built in 1894 for $12,000 by Eliza and Burt Ringo Moffett, who owned a flour mill nearby. Amanda B. Cox, the mother of 14 children, purchased the residence in 1930 and her heirs occupied it until 1978. Named "Rosemont" by the original owners, the home reflects the elegant architectural stylings of the 1890s in the use of wide verandas, ten fireplaces with carved oak mantels, an elaborate onion dome, and gingerbread trim.
