Crystal Miller Todd shared this update: I want to thank you for taking this picture when you did. I found out yesterday, 10/18/2014, that this house was demolished in order to put up a new irrigation system by my dad’s family. I have many memories of this house and being in this house. Thank you for preserving this memory for me and my family!

    My uncle-in-laws sister used to live here and she said it was haunted. We were able to take pictures of the inside, though the pictures are not that great due to an extremely old digital camera and horrible printer, but if you would like I could share those with you. You may contact me via email and I’ll send them.

    I just happened to come across your web site looking for old pictures of courthouses and jails. This house here is the house my daddy and his 11 brothers and sisters grew up in. One of my uncles and his sons had it up and running as a hunting lodge about 20 years ago, then another family member moved in when the hunting lodge fell through. Then I’m not sure what happened. It still belongs to my family and I hate to see that they allowed it to get into this condition..
