    Dr. James Samuel Abernethy House (MK 1486), Mt. Holly - Huntersville Road. The log core of this house was enlarged with a two-story front gable wing around the 1870s. Some sawnwork details indicates the Vernacular Victorian style of the update. Dr. Abernethy did not build the house, but lived here during his years of service in the area. The house is not far from that of his competitor Dr. W.P. Craven. The two were known locally as "Dr. Pill and Dr. Powder." Although still stable, the dwelling is facing serious neglect. Recommendation: the Historic Landmarks Commission should attempt to contact the owner to determine the future status of the property. If necessary, the Commission might consider developing a preservation strategy for the house.
