The Residence
Next to St. George's Church, a residence was built by the Hmoud family in early part of the 20th century. Lieutenant Colonel F. G. Peake (Peake Pasha) lived in this house from 1920 until 1939 while he created and commanded the Arab Legion (Jarvis 1943: 70). His house was usually full of guests, especially during the winter season and T. E. Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) stayed there in 1921 (Jarvis 1943: 83). During Peake's residence the Byzantine church was used as a garden.
