The Chinaberry trees (Melia azedarach) engulfing this structure were once a common sight in the South. Their rapid range expansion, septic-damaging root systems, and reputation as an invasive have made them largely undesirable today. Still, they remain a popular icon of rural Southern culture.

This house was located on Crepe Myrtle Road. I believe it was demolished by 2014.
