Moran Place is located in Dresden,TN. Built by John Williamson Moran for his wife Sophia Riley Gunn. The house used a modified design of George Barber's Cottage no. 36 from his Cottage Souvenir Book No. 2. Construction began in 1895 but was put on hold when Sophia Moran became ill. She died Oct. 7 1895. A few months after her death construction resumed. This blog is about the history of the Moran family & their life at Moran Place. Money is fleeting, History is forever.

Gustave Toutant Beauregard, Revisited
Pierre Toutant Beauregard
1879 - 1931
I was going to post this picture on Victorian Hoarders today as an unknown person. However, as I looked at the picture I realized I knew this face. Had seen it before and even blogged about him. I thought it was amazing to have one picture of Gustave Toutant Beauregard so to have two is just miraculous. Pierre did not become as famous as his grandfather, General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard, but he did alright as a Captain in the United States Army and later as an attorney for the United States Federal Trade Commission.
