Redick Allred House

Redick Allred hired Jens “Rock” Sorensen in the mid-1870s to build this one-and-one-half story, hall- parlor type house. Sorensen reportedly used no scaffolding; instead, he carried the cut limestone block on his shoulder while climbing a ladder to the top of the wall. The house is an outstanding example of early Spring City vernacular architecture. The original front entrance was on the broad, west-facing side of the house, Isaac Allred, drugstore owner and self-taught dentist, bought the house in 1880 for $450.
