    This was the farmhouse of my grandfather, John Benjamin Akins, (1869-1950) He moved here after leaving the Big House on Mud Road. In 1908, he purchased 1200 acres from the Groover family, eventually owning appx. 2,100 acres. With the exception of maybe 25 acres, the land is still in the Akins family, down to the 4th and 5th generation. This house is now vacant, being so for many years. The house is located in the Akins Community, on Arcola Road, south of US 80.
