Dr. John Stiles Holliday, who built the house on the land that his father purchased, offered his home as a boarding house for students and teachers from nearby Fayetteville Academy.
Mrs. Permelia Ware Holliday was instrumental in the manufacture of a Confederate flag for the first volunteer troops to leave Fayette County for the War in 1861. The flag was partially made in the Holliday-Dorsey-Fife House.
“Manse” or “Manny” as he was called, was the flag bearer for the first company that left Fayette County for the war. He was the last Dorsey family member to live in the house.
