John Dunn was a highly skilled brick mason who built many of Lewisburg's fine homes and the Greenbrier County Courthouse.
Later known as the Renick house, this building was vacant for many years and had deteriorated. In 1999 the building was purchased by Ann and John Wade Bell III. It was expertly restored by Mr. Bell, a local contractor, in 2000-2001 and now houses an interior decorating firm. During the restoration, Mr. Bell determined the roof originally had white oak shingles.
