Marker Text Constructed between 1859 and 1862 by James H. Thomason, this is one of the oldest homes in Walker County. Byrd Eastham acquired the house in 1869, and his descendants, one of whom married into the Thomason Family, have retained ownership. The Georgian plan home exhibits simple classical revival features in its balustrade, porte cochere, and central hall entrance with sidelights. The triple two-story columns were added in 1912.
