In this picture, the Cobb House still has its third story, which was later removed. The 1860 neighborhood was prominent - the Crumps next door (where auditorium is), the Balfours and the Willises (Newitt Vick's niece, Martha Patience Vick Willis) across the street. If you notice, there are no front steps to the Cobb House. That is because the neighbors did not want to see the poor children the nuns were teaching, so the steps were removed and tall hedges planted across the front. The children entered from the back. The Cobb House was built in the early 1830's, the Gothic Convent was built in 1868, and the Italianate auditorium was build in 1885. As most of you know, the last scenes of "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" with George Clooney were filmed in the auditorium.
