Join us for our yearly members only reception at the beautifully rehabilitated Mills-Davis house!

Built in 1878, this Italianate house was home to Abraham Anderson Mills and his wife Eliza. Abraham was sheriff and county judge. They lived in the house until the 1940s when it was sold to Dr. Emmett N. Davis, who passed the house on to his son, famed photographer William "Bill" Davis. The house was purchased by Jennifer Carman in 2016, and rehabilitated by Jennifer Carman and Donna Thomas. It is now home to J. Carman,Inc. fine art advisory and appraisal services, and Norton Arts, Inc., a nationally known art conservation firm.
