Note:

Local tradition traced by Lizzie Wilson Montgomery in Memories of Old Warrenton credibly cites Holt as the carpenter for the imposing brick house. The bricklayer has not been identified. Probably the project that brought Holt to Warrenton, the house has features in common with those in Holt’s native Prince Edward County, Virginia, as well as to Holt’s later work in North Carolina.
