Homeland Caretaker House

When Brian Hammock and his wife found out in 2014 that their family would grow from two children to three, the couple knew they’d be needing a little more space than the 1,500-square-foot Lake Evesham home they had lived in for seven years. The family considered moving out of the city, but after some searching they found the perfect upgrade  — a larger, 2,200 square foot home just a mile south in the historic Homeland neighborhood.

“We felt like we could get a home that really had some character at a better price than outside of the city,” Hammock said. “You just can’t find 22-inch stone walls anywhere else.”

But starting next month, those tours will dive equally into the lives of the Conner and Ross families, who served the Carrolls as slaves.
