Virtual Tour Link: https://theinnatforestoaks.com/virtual-tour/ ----The Manor House was built in 1806 by Matthew Houston who was a cousin of Sam Houston of Texas fame. The house served as a store and tavern as well as home to the Houston family and the home base for the sprawling plantation. In 1812, Houston expanded the house and incorporated a two-story center hall with a full arched ceiling reminiscent of the nearby Natural Bridge. The house stood virtually unchanged until 1916 when it was purchased by Curtis Walton and his aunt Lilly who transformed the original federal style structure to the grand mansion that it is today. The two-story center hall remained, however, the arched ceiling was removed and replaced with stunning oak woodwork and arches which were brought from England. In addition, the Walton’s built three Greek revival cottages on the property, one of which served as their temporary home as the Manor House was renovated. Click here for additional info.
