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.

Walter Morrison’s General Store, Mount Vernon

These two buildings on Church Street are my favorite in Mount Vernon. The red brick storefront on the left was Walter Morrison’s General Store. Neal Stanford writes: This was my grandfathers’ store, which he operated for 70 years. It closed in 1988. What great memories I have of it being open on Saturday mornings. Lisa Graham notes that the false-front building on the right was where Mr. Morrison stored his feed and seed.
