Brown Farm Tenant House, Owensboro

Matt Brown writes: That’s what we call the dynamite house; they used to store dynamite in it. Before that various tenants lived in it. The house and barns by the road was where my dad’s farming operation was. My sister owns the land and plans to restore the house.

This style house was once common in turpentine camps but was also utilized on large farms. This one seems to have been recently exposed and as is often the case the property is likely to be cleared in the near future.

No one who lived in these types of houses had an easy life, but they were often an improvement over the drafty log housing common with the working class a few decades earlier.
