This was our first collection, with work on these designs beginning in late 1996. From the beginning, the Mooresville Collection was conceived as a traditional neighborhood collection. It is named in honor of Mooresville, Alabama, a tiny planters’ hamlet just a stone’s throw from the Tennessee River that, while not excellent enough to be nationally renowned, nonetheless inspired us to believe that if our ancestors could do better, we could do better, too. Most of the plans in the Mooresville Collection are Large Houses and Mansions, although there are a few smaller designs in the collection. Most are designed to be built of brick, and they generally tend to be more classical than most of the plans in the other collections.
