In 1875, Charles Howry, prominent attorney, commissioned architect James Stewart to design this elegant Italianate house using pre-cut materials shipped by boat and assembled on site. Later, owners with an impressive violin collection named it Fiddler’s Folly on the occasion of Oxford first pilgrimage on 1962. Today the home is owned by Mr. & Mrs. Tom Davis. Fiddler’s Folly, as part of the North Lamar District, was declared a National Historic Place on November 14, 2007.
