Manufactured House, Carnigan

Jan Deal Hendrix writes: The house shown here was the Doctor J. Oscar Strickland house who was a son of J.W. Strickland, first mayor. J.W. was my great grandfather and Doc was my great Uncle, brother to my grandmother. J.W. built the home across the street from this and it was later remodeled by J.O. Bacon. It is still there and is owned by the First Baptist church.
