The Compton House


807 N. Meridian


Built in 1903 for the town physician, A.B. Compton, this is the only gambrel roof house in the area. The home was built out of brick manufactured locally in downtown Meridian. Local lore tells us that the current stucco was added only after an early resident, having a night out on the town, kicked in the wall and damaged the gentle brick. It is said that the original brick still remains under the new finish. The property was recently rezoned to Old Town allowing future owners the ability to run a commercial business out of the building.
