There is a house in Jones County that weathered the Civil War, but now isin dangerof being destroyed.

The house belonged to Jesse Hunt in 1841, but was sold when he died.

After a series of owners, the Hunt House fell into the hands of John Wieters.

Family members like Hank Hunt hope to have the house renovated.

Wieters says the house is sold, but it's hard for Hunt to believe because previous sales have fallen through.

Hunt says Wieters told him that the house was slated to become salvage lumber.

Hunt and other family members have reached out to the owner with offers but he says the owner wants to sell the house off the property.

The Hunt house still stands in the exact site 203 years later.
