The four tall Doric columns to support the portico were shipped from Scotland (some Pontotoc residents said they came from a real castle) to Mobile and were brought overland by ox carts to Pontotoc. Spectators from all over the countryside came to watch those massive columns raised into place. When the house was finished, Mr. and Mrs. Gordon invited their friends to come to a party, a social christening for Lochinvar.
