|Madison County, Kentucky|
Nearby, a tombstone reads “In Memory of Isaac Newland, born 10-15-1752, died 9-22-1808"; presumably, this was the Reverend Newland who was an early preacher in rural Madison County. Shelby Irvine probably built the brick portion.
This early settler’s dwelling. Although now vacant, is illustrative of the sort of rural residences built in Madison County at the beginning of the nineteenth-century. The Isaac Newland House consists of two construction materials, stone and brick, and displays irregularly placed bays on the front. One section of the two-story single-pile house, probably the original structure, is built of stone with a story chimney at one end of a gable roof. The common bond brick addition has a slightly higher roof and contains a hall-parlor plan. A corbelled brick interior chimney and a brick end chimney extend above the gable roof on the brick portion of the house. Single-sash attic windows flank the end chimney. A two-story ell extends to the rear.
