Holland-Duncan House has served as a focal point for the Hales Ford community since its construction in the 1830s by plantation owner Asa Holland, who also served as a federal postmaster before the Civil War. The two-story, Flemish-bond brick house features molded brick cornices, gauged jack arches over the window, and Federal-style interior detailing. After the Civil War, William Duncan married Holland’s daughter, Sallie, and the couple lived in the house. The Duncans operated private academies at Hales Ford, and William Duncan became a prominent two-term superintendent of Franklin County schools in the late 1800s.
