Cotton Mill Tenant House, Poulan

I first thought this to be a commissary but Hugh Harris West writes that this was not a commercial structure. It was a shotgun cotton mill house and I knew the families who lived there in the ’40’s and ’50’s. There was an identical house to the right of this. I do not know what is stored, if anything, in this structure now. The exterior window treatments were changed when it ceased to be a dwelling.

    You are correct, I lived next door as a child. There were two houses like this. It had only three rooms.

  2. I believe someone has a welding shop there.
