David Harper Abernathy was born in 1858 in Arkansas. He moved with his family to Pittsburg in 1864. After learning business in Nashville, Tennessee, David returned to help Run his father's dry goods store. He was a major leader in town and was heavily involved in the Methodist church. This house was built for the Abernathy family in 1896 by George Barber. It is a two-story Queen Anne-style home, with a wraparound porch, spindle work and a front gable. The original front door is intact and much of the interior has remained unchanged. The house was expanded and modified after World war II. The house is a reminder of a century of the influential Abernathy family.
