The Coker House, continued

Today, we continue with the Coker House, built in 1852 near Edwards in Hinds County. These images show the interior of the house before and after the MDAH restoration of 2008-09. For exterior photographs and a little history, see the previous post.

This image shows the wide center hallway that was a common feature in houses of that era.

Devastation wrought by time and the elements.

You can see the elements original to the house above–the mantle and doors.

The Coker House is located about 3 miles east of Edwards on Highway 467 in front of the Cal-Maine Foods plant. Visitors are welcome from sunup to sundown. There is no charge. For more information, call 601-446-6502 or email the Historic Properties division.
