Ex-Oconee house taking form in Virginia
Remember the grand old Walhalla Home that stood along S. College Street, next to College Street Baptist Church? The former Biemann-Hughs house is in the early stage of rebuild in the equestrian country of Virginia. A year ago, the house was dismantled in Walhalla and moved by Scott Johnston and Suzy Neesen to be reassembled for their new home in Virginia’s Fauquier County. In all, it’s to be a three-year job. Leslie White, curator of the Oconee Heritage Center, helped negotiate a $20 thousand deal to sell the materials from the 1880-built house and its yellow heart pine wood and remains in contact with its new owners about the reconstruction process.
