    Description

    Rich history and beautiful Cedarhurst, a French Gothic style Antebellum home Remarkable five bedrooms, three baths on lush 10 acres. The home boasts a mother in law wing complete with bath and kitchen. This home could be easily used as a bed and breakfast or wedding venue.CharlesBonner(1814-1878), a medical doctor born in Ireland who settled in Holly Springs in 1845 Dr Bonner married into a wealthy family,and constructed this grand Gothic Revival home in 1857. After the end of the Civil War, the Bonner House was used as the hdqtrs of General Edward OC.Ord, the Commander of the4th Military Dist, which included all of MS, during the Federal post-war occupation of the South.During Reconstruction, a garrison of 200 Federal troops were stationed in Holly Springs near this house. Dr. Bonnerdied along with his son Sam, during the Yellow Fever Epidemic. Dr. Bonner's daughter was Katherine Sherwood Bonner (1849-1883), an author and early feminist figure. Sherwood Bonner grew up in this house, and in 1871 she married Edward McDowell and had one daughter, named Lillian. Bonner became unhappy in her marriage, and- in a rare move for the time- left her husband and daughter in 1873 and moved to Boston, Massachusetts. Soon Bonner came under the tutelage of famous writer Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who encouraged Bonner to write several "Southern dialect" stories, including her only novel "Like Unto Like" (1878). In 1878, during the Yellow Fever Epidemic, Sherwood Bonner returned to Holly Springs, saving her daughter from the disease and nursing her father and brother before their death. Bonner survived the Yellow Fever, but was diagnosed with breast cancer and died in Holly Springs in 1883. The Bonner House was inherited by Sherwood Bonner's daughter, Lillian, and in 1901 the home was sold to current owners. This family has resided in Cedarhurst for 117 years, longer than any other current family in Holly Springs has lived in a single home. As of 2018, the house is for sale, and the next owners will only be the third family to live in the house in 162 years. Remarkable five bedrooms, three baths on lush 10 acres. The home boasts a mother in law wing complete with bath and kitchen. This home could be easily used as a bed and breakfast or wedding venue.
