The Old Best House


Author(s):
Abstract:
Mrs. Murphy describes the Best House, located near Snow Hill in Greene County, one of the oldest houses in the county, and perhaps in the state. Henry Best I built it in 1735 using workmen brought from England. In its day it was one of the most pretentious mansions in the eastern part of the state where guests were entertained royally. His grandson Henry Best III later remodeled the house.
