PROPINQUITY C. 1800
Propinquity was acquired in 1811 by Col. Leonard Covington. The home functioned as a residence and small farm until 1832 when it was acquired by Dr. John Branch and transformed into a cotton plantation. The two-story frame house is renowned for its original Federal style millwork and is remarkable for retaining much of its architectural integrity. Dr. Branch’s descendants owned the property for nearly 200 years and many of their furnishings and decorative arts still adorn the house.
