Jesse Fuller Jones House - 1810
Spring Green Community
Located in the Spring Green community of Martin County, several miles south of the town of Hamilton, NC, the Jesse Fuller Jones House was built about 1810 for its namesake, a local physician. Dr. Jones, originally from Edgecombe County, farmed the more than 600-acre tract of land surrounding his premises in addition to his active medical practice and research interests.

The property has the distinction for housing the first hospital in Martin County. Though now gone, several frame structures standing on the road near the front yard of the home once housed the doctor’s office, apothecary and sickroom.

After Jones’ death in 1830, the house was sold nearly a decade later by his son, Justin to Irvin Taylor, who in turn sold it to his son Jesse Taylor. The Taylor family continued to live in the house until 1909. They rented the property to others; the last occupants being the Slade White family, until 1976. The property was then purchased by the present owner, Mr. Freddie M. Powell.

Mr. Powell has since dedicated himself to restoring the much intact Federal style edifice to its early nineteenth century charm and appearance. Today, beautifully manicured gardens border the house, where once stood numerous outbuildings. In the early 1990s, the house was featured in a national home décor magazine, Veranda.

The Friends of Old Martin County Courthouse is pleased to honor this 1980 National Register of Historic Places structure as inspiration for its 2021 annual history ornament.

Ornaments are on sale year round.
