Austin Lawrence - Wrenn House

This 170-year-old house has woodwork and moldings made from the Greek Revival classical designs by architect Asher Benjamin (1773 -1845) in his pattern books that were widely circulated in the first half of the 19th Century. After the Austin Lawrence family moved away around 1855, the Cedar Falls Mill Company owned the house and it was rented to various tenants for over 100 years. The history of the house starts with the textile mill development of Randolph County; the founding of Cedar Falls; and the spreading of industrialization from New England to and through the American South.
