R.K. Shaw-Embry House (1895)

   Built by Roderick K. Shaw, a shade tobacco planter and life insurance agent, the house was later sold to E.B. Embry, who came from Kentucky and organized the Embry Tobacco Company. The R.K. Shaw-Embry House is an excellent example of Queen Anne architecture with its “picturesque massing of a variety of shapes and textures in a non-symmetrical composition.” The decorative brackets, spindle work on gable and scalloped shingles on the roof are of notable significance. In 1998, Mary Alice and Carson Dyal completed an elegant restoration of this lovely house. An addition on the back contains a studio and garage. The house is now owned by Richard and Lynne Greco.
