Just a reminder to anyone visiting here for the first time, this is Bath, North Carolina, not Bath, England. Regarding historic home tours, there are only two in this tiny village of 250 people. The first is the Palmer Marsh House. Built by Frenchman Michael Coutanch in 1751, the home transferred to Scotsman Mr. Palmer only ten years later. This is the house front. The many windows demonstrate wealth, and the need for cooling breezes in the summer.
Bonner House. Mr. Bonner, who owned and lived on a plantation three miles outside town, built this home as his family's summer residence. They wanted to participate more easily in the town's social life during the summer months.
