The especially ornate plantation house was built, according to a granddaughter (Jane Carr Robertson) who was born in the house, for William Carr upon the occasion of his marriage to Bettie Irwin, and "he took his bride to Fairmount to live." "A man named Holt was architect, and I always understood Fair Mount was the fairest of them all, and called Holt's masterpiece."
