My dad reports the house was up the hollow above the Big Creek Baptist Church. Just above where the lake is now. It had porches on front and back, just about alike. It was built by Grant Clubb (brother to my ggm Fannie Clubb Johnson). Grant Clubb built three houses in the area from the same plans, one still stands at Buckhorn. It was the home of Ike Pugh when he ran the store at Buckhorn. It has been modified. The clapboards were finished with linseed oil and lasted well.Return to the top
