Wade HouseThe Wade House

The Wade House, today visible only in photographs as a dwelling with double chimneys on both ends, was likely built in the 18th or early 19th century (right). The building was similar to others in the town, having a brick foundation that extended into a deep cellar. It is likely that these deep cellars were used as storage space when goods were flowing freely in Later Wade Houseand out of Port Tobacco's port.

Behind the Wade House was the Wade Store (above), which originally may have been used as a kitchen. Clearly the building was cannibalized for material in the early 20th century, both chimney stacks having been removed. Other photographs show the removal of doors, windows, and siding.
