The Palmer House
111 W. Main Street
Blue Mountain, MS
Palmer House was built in the summer of 1892, for Charles Frederick
Sent in by Maggie Reese
Palmer and his wife Allie. Allie was the daughter of the Rev.
Cossitt and his wife Jane. She was a graduate of the Blue Mountain
College. Charles was the brother of Dr. John Palmer and Orlando W.
both of Blue Mountain as well. I have been unable to definitely pin
builder but suspect it was one Lonn Robertson (or Roberson). The family
legend passed down by Marjorie (Charles and Allie's granddaughter)
to me is
that the master carpenter had a thick Scottish brogue and that is all
knew. Note in the left hand side of the photo the buildings sitting
where the Blue Mountain College brick entrance gate is today. They
original school rooms built by Lowery as far as I can tell.
