Mary King Givens writes: This house was built in 1898 by John McPhaul* for T.J. Pinson. It remained in the Pinson family until 1939 when it was purchased by the D.L. Gammage family and continues to be owned by my family. At the same time John McPhaul built a home for T.J. Pinson’s brother, Jesse W. using the same house plan. This house is located in the same block on Isabella Street as our home.
*- John McPhaul, a native of North Carolina, was the founder in 1877 of the nearby town of Poulan.
