Sidna Allen built the house over a century ago, just south of Hillsville. The historical society has asked the county for $50,000 to help restore it.
County asked to help preserve Allen House


HILLSVILLE – Three members of the Carroll County Historical Society attended last Monday week’s Board of Supervisors meeting with two missions – to give a report on the renovation of the Sidna Allen Home at Fancy Gap and to ask for short-term funds to continue the renovation project.

John Carpenter told the supervisors that the renovation was going well, but it will take a lot of time and money to finish the project and restore the home to its original condition.
