Context/Comments
Known historically as the John Baynton House, Williamsburg is a small by elegant one-and-a-half story frame house with exceptionally fine detail in the Federal style. Built for Natchez land speculator, John Baynton, the house later became the home of the Junkin family, antecedents of John R. Junkin, Speaker of the Mississippi House of Representatives in the 1970s.
