Built in 1867, the Matheson House is a two-story
frame building resting on brick piers. The house is
rectangular in plan with an east-west orientation. On
the front of the house (west side) is a shed-type porch
with six free standing square wooden columns carried all
the way to the ground. There are four brick chimneys,
two of which are on the exterior of the house at the
gable ends. The building has, as its most significant
feature, a gambrel roof of sufficient pitch to accommodate
three standard narrow dormers topped by low pitched gables
treated on the front as pediments. The roof is covered
with cypress shingles painted green and cut into decora-
tive patterns. Windows are scarce and in all cases are
two light sash. The front door is original and has
glass sidelights. Additions to the house include a m
lean-to addition on the east side which houses the kitchen m
facilities. The interior of the house has heart pine
flooring and original fireplaces and mantelpieces.
There is a unique balcony at the first stair landing z
which overlooks the entry hall. The fabric of the
house is in good condition.

,STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANCE

James Douglas Matheson, a prominent Gainesville
merchant, built this house in 1867. It was inherited by
his son, the Rev. Chris Matheson, who was mayor of
Gainesville for eight terms in the early 1900's and a
member of the Florida legislature in 1917. The house is
today occupied by Mrs. Chris Matheson, his widow.

Architecturally, the Matheson house is significant
in that the gambrel roof occurs relatively infrequently
in Florida. The house reflects characteristics of a
transitional style between late Colonial and early Georgian.
The gambrel over a single file of rooms (as the Matheson
house was prior to additions) can be seen in many North
Carolina and Virginia houses after 1725. The similarities,
for example, between the Matheson house and the well-known
Booth House in Edenton, NC. are striking. Both have a
lean-to addition at the rear and a shed-type porch at
the front. Both have the chimney outside and spaced
away from the gable. The main variation is in the type
of dormer used, Matheson having the pedimented type.

It is possible in the case of the Matheson house
that the choice of a gambrel was an economic consideration,
in that less material is required and shorter rafter
lengths can be used. The cutting of the cypress shingles
into ornate patterns would probably not have necessitated
great expense due to the fact that Gainesville was, at
that time, a milling center. Existing data indicates
that the Matheson house, which served as a social center
in postbellum Gainesville, is the second oldest house
in the city.


*In Florida, the chronology of Eastern seaboard styles
is not applicable.

Toxic levels


of PCB are


at Blanding
By CAROL EVERTS
Sun staff writer
CAMP BLENDING Tests results
taken from soil samples where 30
electrical capacitors were discovered
last month at the south end of Camp
Blanding indicate high levels of PCB
contamination.
Ernie Frey, chief of the Florida De-
partment of Environmental Regula-
tion's hazardous waste division in
Jacksonville, said three soil samples
taken at the site before Christmas
contained "some pretty high levels of
PCB contamination." One sample
tested at 254,000 parts per million
PCBs, while the other two contained
18,530 and 92 parts per million. Lev-
els above 50 parts per million are con-
sidered toxic.
PCBs, or polychlorinated
biphenyls, which are thought to cause
cancer, are often found in oil that in-
sulates electrical transformers and
capacitors.
The illegally dumped capacitors,
which were discovered in mid-De-
cember by Camp Blanding personnel
in an area of the Florida National
Guard installation that is used pri-
marily for recreation, were removed
by an independent contractor em-
ployed by DER. Soil samples were
taken to determine the amount of
contamination.
Frey said the contractor, OM Mate-
rials of Atlanta and Orlando, will re-
turn to the site near Blue Pond this
week to remove a "reasonable
amount" of soil, probably 4 to 6 inch-
es, from the area. He said that after
the soil is removed, samples will be

exporter


gets 3 years
By HELEN HU
Sun staff writer
.. A Miami exporter who tried to buy
6itousands of dollars worth of goods
from local merchants in the name of
a phony company was sentenced
Monday to three years in prison.
Richard Allan Lyter, 40, and three
co-defendants created fake checks
with a check writer-coder machine
and a corporate seal, police said.
Using the falsified checks, the de-
fendants last March unsuccessfully
tried to buy $26,000 worth of diesel
equipment, $11,055 worth of tires,
$3,585 in generators and chain saws,
and $1,170 worth of color TV sets, po-
lice said.
They planned to resell the goods,
according to one defendant.
To initiate the scam, the four
opened checking accounts at two lo-
cal banks with small cash deposits.
They later deposited larger
amounts using checks draw on an

By WAYNE GARCIA
Sun staff writer
Galnesville's second-oldest home
was severely damaged by a fire that
raced through its wooden attic Mon-
day afternoon.
The fire started around a chimney

p.m., Gainesville Fire Department
Capt. Walter McGraw said. At least 20
firefighters fought the blaze and the
biting cold to contain the blaze to the
second story of the home.
McGraw said the fire was particu-
larly hard to fight' because the home
is wood frame and the old-style con-
struction concealed smoldering wood
under the roof.
McGraw said the chimney had a
furnace hooked to it and apparently

insulating clay had been knocked
from around the chimney and the fire
raced quickly up the empty space.lnto
the attic, he said.
Firefighters had to cut away the
northeast corner of the roof to get at
the fire. McGraw said the attic was
destroyed and part of the second'sto-
ry was severely damaged, but the.rest
of the home is salvageable.
"The first floor is in pretty good
shape. It is repairable," McGraw said.
Tuesday evening, McGraw said the
house was valued at $125,000 and the
value of the home's contents was put
at $50,000. He said damage to the
home was placed at $50,000 and dam-
age to the contents was estimated to
be $10,000. He said there was "heavy
damage to the building andmoderate
damage to the contents."
The owner of the home, Sara Ham-
ilton Matheson, is the widow of for-
mer Gainesville Mayor Chris
Matheson. Mrs. Matheson was able to
get out of the burning home safely,
firefighters said.
Much of the upper level of'the
home that was built with "heart'of
pine," as Mrs. Matheson once told a
reporter, was damaged by both the
fire and firefighters trying to get to
the fire. Several sections of the green
roof of the home had to be stripped
away or cut into Wtth axes so
firefighters could geltft the blaze.
"We're not going t & ose this ohe,"
McGraw said to a rep6fter as he bel-
lowed! Instructions to his men on a
loudspeaker.
A member of a local historical
society expressed sadness, saying:the
house was the oldest in the city that is
still being used as a residence.
"This is a serious blow," !aid
Marinus- Latour, publicist for the
Alachua County Historical Society.
"It's a strong blow after the house has
survived more than 100 years."
Mrs. Matheson, who is now in her
80s, is a past president of the society.
"Until an estimate is given of the
damage, there is no way to tell wh4t is
going to have to be done to renovate
the house," Latour said. "Obviously,
something is going to have to be done
to salvage it."
The house, which was built in 1867
by James Douglas Mathesor, was.
placed on the National Register 'of
Historic Homes in 1975.

Both sides of abortion issue mark court decision today.


By CARL CRAWFORD
Sun staff writer
Representatives of area pro-choice groups
and abortion clinics are preparing to celebrate
today's 12th anniversary of the Supreme Court
ruling that liberalized abortion in the United
States. Those opposed to abortion planned to
note the anniversary with a rally today on the
University of Florida campus.
Roe vs. Wade, the 1973 case which led to the
liberalization of abortion statutes, was the im-


petus behind a city hall press conference Mon-
day morning at which pro-choice
representatives defended the right of women to
have "legal and safe" abortions. They also
pledged to maintain security at abortion clinics
to protect them against violent attacks.
Meanwhile, on Monday a spokeswoman for
the Gainesville Right to Life pro-life group said
a "Rally for Life" scheduled at UF's Plaza of
the Americas at 11:30 this morning will go on
despite the probability of very low


temperatures.
The anniversary of Roe vs. Wade occurs as
abortion clinics across the country are tighten-
ing security in response to bombing attacks at
clinics, including some in Washington D.C. and
Pensacola. The attacks have meant tightened
security at clinics in Gainesville, although rep-
resentatives of some of those clinics said they
haven't received specific threats against their

ganization for Women, said the maternal death

As one of American Telephone

The voice on the other end of the

Or, more terrifying, Bratton ad-

This time it is a blind man who
needs Bratton to locate and dial a
long-distance number for him.
"You have to be attentive. You
never know what that next call is
going to be. Somebody's very life
might depend on it," she says.
Bratton has worked as an opera-

Farmers and ag interests object to Graham's 'Florida State Plan'


SBy GALEN MOSES
Sun staff writer
Gov. Bob Graham's proposed "Florida
State Plan" could have a devastating Impact
on Florida agriculture by effectively lower-
ing the value of farm land, according to a
number of farmers and agricultural repre-
sentatives who voiced objections to the plan
at a meeting in Gainesville Monday.
Mandated by the Legislature in its session
last spring, the proposed plan drawn up by
the governor's office of planning and budget-
ing includes 33 major goals or objectives to be
achieved in Florida over the next decade.
The goals provide a "general sense of vi-
sion" for the future of a rapidly growing state,
According to Tom Herndon, chief architect of
the plan as director of the planning and bud-
geting office.


Herndon drew plenty of flak from agricul-
tural representatives, however, over two ob-
jectives relating to land use and agriculture.
The land use objective notes Florida "will
control urban sprawl and loss of agricultural
lands by ensuring that 85 percent of new pop-
ulation growth from 1985 to 1995 occurs in
existing urban areas and that no community
development takes place in environmentally
sensitive areas."
Farmers argued, however, that by encour-
aging or directing development around cur-
rently urbanized areas, the development
value of outlying farm land would be low-
ered, jeopardizing their livelihood.
"We're in a time now where all Florida
agriculture is having economic problems,"
said Jimmy Glissom, agricultural loan officer
for the Sun Bank in Ocala.


The land use objective notes
Florida "will control urban
sprawl iad loss of agricultural
lands by ensuring that 85 percent
of new population growth from
1985 to 1995 occurs in existing
urban areas and that no
community development takes
place in environmentally
sensitive areas."


The increasing value of land is the only
thing that enables farmers to borrow more


money and stay in production, Glissom said.
"This state plan would definitely cut down the
growth in land values," he said in summariz-
ing the views of numerous other farmers who
spoke.
The agricultural objective of the proposed
plan states simply that "Florida will maintain
its relative share of the national agricultural
market."
But included under the policy section of
this objective is support for the preservation
of farm land, which most farmers feel would
also devalue their property.
Questioned further on this issue, Herndon
sought to assure farmers that their objections
were coming across "loud and clear."
"Obviously we'll have to look at the agricul-
tural issues," Herndon said, while noting it


Raulerson death sentence upheld


By MARY ANNE RHYNE
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Florida's Su-
preme Court unanimously upheld a
death sentence for convicted police
killer James David Raulerson Mon-
day, paving the way to his electrocu-
tion scheduled for next week.
Raulerson's attorney, Palmer Sin-
gleton, asked the court earlier in the
day to either delay or overturn the
execution saying jurors' exposure to
media reports damaged Raulerson's
trial.
Prosecutors said there was no evi-
dence to back those claims and that
such charges should have been made
earlier.
Raulerson is scheduled to die at 7
a.m. next Tuesday for killing Jackson-
ville Police Officer Michael David
Stewart in a gunbattle April 27, 1975
at the Sailmaker Restaurant. It is
Raulerson's third death warrant.
Singleton asked for the delay to
hold an evidentiary hearing on
Raulerson's complaints. Judge Clif-
ford Shepard of the 4th Judicial Cir-

home into a monument for her late
husband, who served as mayor of
Gainesville from 1910 to 1918 and
also was a state senator. -She also
wanted it to be a historic museum to
preserve the city's cultural heritage.
Latour said the house still had its
original lumber and many of its origi-
nal shingles.
Latour said that although Mrs.
Matheson was in her 80s, she was still
very active.
"She's a remarkable individual and
an active civic leader for a number of
years," Latour said.
The house is unique not only be-
cause of its six square columns and
gambrel roof but because the
Matheson family has owned it since it
was built. Many of the family's heir-
looms and historical papers were
kept at the home, Latour said.
It was not known how many of
those belongings were destroyed in
the fire and Mrs. Matheson could not
be located for comment.
The Matheson House is second in
age only to the Bailey House at 1121
NW 6th Street.


cuit Court denied the requests last,
week.
The complaints included the trial
court's failure to change the place of
trial because of pretrial publicity, ju-
rors concealing facts when they were
interviewed for the jury panel, jurors
disobeying the judge's order not to
read or listen to press accounts dur-
ing the trial and ineffective legal
counsel.
"Jurors knew facts and were privy
to information before being seated as
jurors," Singleton told the court dur-
ing oral arguments. "They chose not
to disclose the fact they knew some-
thing about it (the case)."
He said jurors' exposure to press
accounts surfaced during a post-trial
investigation. He said that's also when
defense attorneys discovered that
one juror sought out press accounts of
the case and discussed them with
other jurors during the trial.
But Wallace Allbritton, an assistant
attorney general, said the complaints
could and should have been raised
earlier. He said the charges now are


too vague to warrant a delay.
Allbritton said Raulerson's attor-
neys have failed to show that jurors
were prejudiced against their client
by media accounts.
"We're assuming the truth of the
allegations without any proof of it,"
Allbrittbn said. "He hasn't told the
court one ultimate fact on any perju-
ry that would warrant an evidentiary
hearing. What he wants is to be al-
lowed to go fishing."
The court declined to consider all
claims but that of ineffective counsel,
saying those issues should have been
raised earlier in the appeals process.
Of the final claim, the court said:
"We adhere to our prior judgments
and find appellant's claim without
merit."
Larry Joe Johnson also is sched-
uled to die next Tuesday and his attor-
neys were expected to go to court to
seek a delay. Johnson was convicted
of killing service station attendant
James Maxwell Hadden In Madison
County.

account in Savannah, Ga., knowing
the balance in that account was insuf-
ficient to cover the checks, police
said.
The four then bought equipment to
convert "starter" checks into official-
looking checks, bearing the name of
the non-existent firm, police said.
"Starter" checks, issued when
someone opens a new checking ac-
count, do not show the name of the
check writer.
Police were alerted after a tire
dealer grew suspicious and began
contacting other dealers around
town. The dealers found they'd taken
similar orders from the same person.
Lyter, formerly president of a Mi-
ami-based exporting company called
World Purchasing, Inc., came up with
the scam after he found himself fi-
nancially overextended, family mem-
bers said Monday.
Circuit Judge Chester B. Chance
sentenced Lyter to three years in
prison for grand theft. The maximum
sentence is 15 years and a $10,000
fine.
"I'm very sorry for all the prob-
lems I caused for the people here,"
Lyter said before sentencing. "The
situation got out of hand."
Chance sentenced Arturo Andres
Abaroa, 28, of Gainesville, to two
years' community control, a type of
house arrest, for the same charge.
Abaroa was ordered to pay about
$2,000 to several merchants who ac-
cepted the checks.
Charges were dropped against two
other co-defendants, Melodie Eileen
Enochs, 19, and Vincente Rodriguez,
23, who told police of the scam.
The couple, who are married, suc-
cessfully completed a supervised re-
lease program and now live in
Hialeah.

was still early in the public hearing process
and he was uncertain what changes might be
made.
Herndon said about 40 public hearings con-
cerning the proposed plan will be held
around the state before it is submitted to the
governor and Cabinet on Feb. 5.
The public comments will be considered
before the proposal is submitted to the Legis-
lature by the end of February. The next meet-
ing will be held Thursday at 7 p.m. at the
Bradford County Courthouse in Starke.
Herndon said the Legislature can adopt, re-
ject or amend the proposed plan, but if-it
takes no action, the Cabinet has the authority
to make the plan's objectives serve as guide-
lines for state agencies and regional planning
councils.

Summary: Maintenance Report

This frame vernacular house with Victorian ornament, built in the late
1850's or 1860's, has undergone many additions and major changes, and
is presently suffering from a lack of proper structural maintenance.
There are badly rotted and damaged portions of the structure, but the
building is relatively sound.
The most serious damage is evident in the East shed roof, which is
badly warped. Imbricated shingles on the gambrel roof and dormers are
rotting and badly mildewed, due to direct run-off from rain. One of
the floor beams over the crawl space is severely rotted, and is in
need of replacement. The interiors are in good condition, although
some of the floors slope due to rot.

PLAN













ELEVATIONS


Following is the interpretation of the elevations of the Matheson House.
This is keyed to the respective elevation indices.

West Elevation (Front)


1. Cut lines in clapboard siding over door indicate removal of
window and the replacement with a door.


2. Single deaded siding, which was not in use until after 1890, appears
on the ceiling of the porch. This indicates the porch received a
new ceiling.


3. The porch decking has modern stamps and is dimensioned lumber indicating
that the porch was redecked.


4. The clapboard siding is relatively regular, finished and narrow as
opposed to wider rougher siding on the east and south elevations.
This siding matches the north elevation and indicates the possible
re-siding of the west and north elevations, possibly corresponding
to a major remodeling.


5. This wing has different window moldings and eave details than the main
house indicating quite conclusively that this was a later addition.













North Elevation


1. This siding is commonly referred as novelty siding. It has beveled top
edge and did not exist before 1900. This indicates this was a later
addition.


2. This window has a narrower head trim and wider side trim. This window
possibly could have been added at a later time than the other windows
or had been re-trimmed at one time.


3. This siding matches most closely to the wes' elevation and because of
the wider, rougher siding indicates this elevation may have been re-
sided possibly during a major remodeling.


4. This chimney has a stucco course to a certain point, then brick. The
brick changes,dimension to a narrower size (shown by the arrow) and
continues to the top with the smaller size. This indicates the possible
addition of a second story chimney.












East Elevation



1. See west elevation # 5.


2. This passageway has novelty siding indicating it was an addition at,
or about, the same time the kitchen and back porch were added.


3. These portions of walls have a very wide rough siding, possibly indicating
the"original" siding of the house.


4. This dormer does not align with the front dormer, indicating a possible
movement of the chimney.


5. This window has different moldings and appears to have been added to ac-
comodate a new bathroom.


6. Cut lines in clapboard indicate a single longer window was replaced by
two shorter windows. Since a drain stack comes out of the replaced section
of clapboard, it is assumed this happened when the kitchen was remodeled.


7. The clapboard on this part of the house is novelty siding, however it
is slightly wider than #8 indicating a different addition.


8. This is novelty siding (see #7 above.)


9. The rear chimneys have changes in brick coursing (see arrows) which
indicate the possibility of chimney additions, from single to two story.


10. The rear chimneys also have different cap details indicating that they were
installed at a different time.













South Elevation



1. This portion has the rougher, wider boards indicating the earlier
siding.


2. This window has a double trim indicating that it was possibly replaced
by a window slightly narrower.


3. Later addition. (See west elevation #5.)


4. These portions have the novelty siding which would indicate later
additions about the same time period.


5. The head trim on this window is wider than normal and lines up with
the addition to left indicating this was possibly altered at the time of that
addition's construction.


6. The head trim and sill of this window is two pieces joined in the center
indicating this was possibly two separate windows moved (or reused) to
this location side by side.


7. These louvers and window trim indicate the removal of a window like
the one to the left, most probably at the same time as the addition
below.

Fabric is in good condition

which has settled on its

Good condition, except behind

tion has occurred.

Fascia board on south side is
of later date and does not
match that of the front and
north sides. Fascia on North
side is deteriorated.


The piers do not "corbel
out" below grade or sit on
any kind of pad, making them
susceptible to settling.
Roots from the adjacent tree
may be pushing up on the south
side of the third pier from
the north.


Repointing is needed.


Tree is causing most of the
damage but some settling has
occurred.


Deterioration is probably due
to the masonry of the stair
being in contact with the
wood, allowing the fascia to
remain damp.
