Silas & Christina Moe Scramlin - 1888

This home on Elm Street was built about 1888 by Silas and Christina Moe Scramlin.

Christina Moe Scramlin died in 1929 and Ulysses Grant Brown and family, John, Lyle and Della, rented the Scramlin house from Alice Scramlin Brown who'd inherited the house from her mother Christina Scramlin. It wasn't until 1945 when Lyle and Della purchased the home. Chyke and Kay Simpson are the current owners of this lovely home.
