Provenance This set came from the Archer Anderson House, 103 W. Franklin (Corner of Franklin and Adams street). The house was built in 1815 for Carter B. Page as a two story Federal style house and was eventually enlarged with a third story by Colonel and Mrs. Archer Anderson when they purchased it in 1880. Their daughter, Kathleen Graham Anderson Bourland, was the last family member to live in the home. She died in July 1966 at age 89. She was the youngest of the Anderson's six children.
