Gunn Cook's House

Gunn Cook's House


Gunn Cook's House - GUNCH


The Gunn Property Cook's House dismantle took place on November 27, 2011.  A short video of the actual process was taken via smart-phone.  The small structure consisted of one room with a tin roof.  The dimensions of the house were 10 feet wide by 15 feet long.

The story of the Gunn property started in 1908 when W.F. Wilhoit sold 160 acres to T.S. Locket, who married Oliver Wilhoit's sister.  The land was originally Oliver L Wilhoit's old home-place but became known as the Harrison Reese Place after T.S. Locket sold 185 acres to Mary E. Reese in 1914 for $1895.62.

In 1918 Mary E. Reese sold 118 acres to James J. Gunn for approximately $9500.

Mr. Gunn then began farming and grew mostly cotton on the land as well as corn for the horses and mules.

The homestead consisted of a two story home, Smokehouse, Cook's House, Wash-house, Wood shed, Chicken Coop, Everyday Car Garage, Sunday Car Garage, Gear House, Mule Barn, Corn Crib, Cotton Crib, Out-house and Buggy House.
