Madison, Morgan County
The Stokes-McHenry House was built in 1824 as a Federal style intown residence for Morgan County planter and lawyer Young Stokes. Seven generations of continuous ownership by the same family has resulted in the preservation of this significant historic resource, its furniture and family correspondences. The family, showing considerable foresight, established a small bequest that continues to offset continual maintenance and repair expenses and allows the Hicky family to occasionally open the home for private and public tours. The Hicky family has generously accepted the responsibility of preserving this fine historic property in downtown Madison.
