This is located on Haw Pond Road, near the Turner County line. It’s in poor condition but has been stabilized with a new roof.

    I’m not absolutely sure but I believe this was Bennett Pate’s house. (Distant relatives…my great grandmother was a Pate) I went in it several years ago and it still had some furniture in it, including two pianos. An old upright and a newer one. It is close to the Hawpond Sinkhole. Another family has bought it and the land. There is another log house that my great grandfather built off Hawpond Road down Spires Road named after my ancestors. My great grandfather was Daniel Spires and my grandfather was Sam Spires. My grandmother, his wife, taught at the Hawpond School that you have posted before. I enjoy your website so much. Thank you for helping to keep our history alive.

    Ooooh, maybe someone purchased the farmhouse and is making it a “getaway”. That has been done to an abandoned farmhouse near us and it’s now beautiful.
