In 1830, John Hollensbury’s home in Alexandria was one of two home directly bordering an alleyway that got a lot of horse-drawn wagon traffic. In order to prevent people from using the alleyway, Hollensbury built a seven-feet-wide, two-story home using the existing brick walls of the adjacent homes for the side of his new home. The brick walls of what is now known as the Hollensbury Spite House still bears the gouges from those wagon-wheel hubs, and the house is still standing and occupied.
