This house was built by Dr. William Aaron Moore and his wife Roxie Wycoff Moore. He was an M.D. and she was an R. N. In recent years, it has fallen into disrepair and is presently for sale. I sincerely hope someone will realize the potential in it and work to save it. Thanks to Dr. Moore’s granddaughter, Carole Wingate Keefe, for the identification. She recalled: It was located right across from the depot and when trains came through at night, the noise was an eye opener. Mark Dixon, author of a centennial history of Alapaha in 1981, confirms this information.

    remembering as a child visiting my great aunts and uncle at this house on our way to my Grandmother and Grandpa’s in Florida! This was a wonderful place full of warmth and love!

    Jarret Dean, my nephew, has recently purchased this home and plans to restore it.

    The ALAPAHA house looks very much like that of my grandparents, Dr. William Aaron Moore and Roxie Wycoff Moore. He was an MD, and she was an RN. It was located right across from the depot and when trains came through at night, the noise was an eye opener.
