Butler-Turpin State Historic House

The last place we visited in Carrollton was the Butler- Turpin State Historic House. This like the Masterson house is very beautiful. This is a two story home that was built in 1859 by Mary Ellen and Philip Turpin along with Mary Ellen's father, Thomas Langford Butler. Slaves built the house with bricks made on site. This is such a beautiful house and it sits up on a hill. Like the Masterson house, the Butler- Turpin house does tours and also has a family cemetery. The land of this house is also beautiful. When we were there they were not open for tours. I loved this house. It is hard to believe when you look at it that it is as old as it is. 
It is located in the General Butler State Resort Park.
