This former Civil War Field Hospital is still on the market! The William T. Smith House was built in 1835. It is located on two acres in Averasboro, North Carolina. There is beautiful woodwork inside the home. The Chippendale stair railing is really nice! There are beautiful mantels. Sure would be an interesting project to tackle. I’ve heard stories about this one. This home was used as a hospital during the 1865 Battle of Averasboro. 4,073 square feet. $75,000
