Current home photo by the new owners
This spacious circa 1857 Pulliam/Curry House (414 North Main Street) was begun around 1856 by Monroe B. Pulliam and completed by Daniel Curry and his wife, Martha Jane Forsythe, in 1857. The Gothic Revival style is shown by the board and batten siding and lacy bargeboards. Steep gables decorated with gingerbread, and walls of board and batten are textbook features of the Carpenter Gothic Style.

Daniel Curry was a noted mid-nineteenth century builder as well as a Kentucky legislator. This is Harrodsburg's house of seven gables. The front porch features four sets of paired columns spaced to frame the handsome doorway complete with sidelights and transom. A double lancet window/doorway opens onto the second-floor balcony formed by the flat porch roof. The interior of the home retains its original woodwork and flooring. The home has 11 rooms plus two baths. The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The Pulliam/Curry House is currently under new ownership and renovations are in progress. You can watch all the excitement on the Pulliam/Curry House Facebook page.
