Only a family painting survives to depict the large, elaborate plantation house built for planter John Early Boyd and called Sylva Sonora. It was a classic version of Holt’s Greek Revival-Italianate style with a full panoply of Italianate ornament. (The interior woodwork is said to be in a house in Littleton.) Boyd’s records included a contract with Holt for $4,814.16, plus added items that brought the total to $5956.
