Porter House Range

Often referred to as the "Pit", the Porter House range was created from the massive amounts of dirt pulled from the earth and moved to create Champion Hill, Snake Creek, and Robinson Ranges. The Porter House, also known as The Farm or Porter Family Homestead in Raymond, MS is a vernacular Greek Revival house that was built in c. 1850.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986 at its original location, about three miles southeast of Raymond. It was moved to a location in Raymond in 2004 and has been renovated. In 1986 is was deemed "architecturally significant because it is the only example of a one-room deep, antebellum, Greek Revival cottage" in the Raymond area that was surveyed.
