Though it has been associated with other families over the years, Michael Moxley shares this history about a well-known early resident: This house was at one time the residence of future governor Eugene Talmadge and his wife Ms Mitt. She was from Ailey and they moved into this house after getting married in 1909. From here, they moved to McCrae.

Update: Jill Jordan writes (via our Facebook page) that this house was razed during the last week of June 2019.

    I really love seeing these, and I agree the above style is the best. I know that has to be a tin roof on it. Enjoyed hearing the rain falling on a tin roof when I was a kid. Thanks for sharing. This made my day.
