  • Collaboration with the talented @cyndie.smith 🍂 Thank you for a beautiful edit! 
When I found this house, I ended up staying a while and talking to the daughter-in-law who lived nearby; she’s 89. She told me about her husband who was born in this house, one of three sons; he would be 95 years old today. She said there was once fields of strawberries across the street and watermelons and hay growing in the many acres behind this home. She said inside the home was the most beautiful staircase; next time I’m there I will try to get a picture. Being on this large Homestead gives you the most wonderful feelings of nostalgia and takes you on a trip back in time.

  • “The Archibald McRainey house was constructed in 1909 for the McRainey family.  Archibald McRaney was born in North Carolina and moved to Baker County and then made his fortune in turpentine and lumber. 
The McRainey home was the first in the county to have running water, electricity, and three bathrooms. Pumping water up to the upper levels were difficult, however, due to there not being enough pressure to pump the water up the pipes. Behind the house is a brick cold storage house with eight inch thick walls, a marvel at the time. The house is rumored to have hidden doors which go to secret panic rooms and large murals on walls.”

  • This house has some cool history, apparently the Brown family who lived here over 100 years ago, used to trade with the Cherokee and would hang red blankets in the side windows to alert them when it wasn’t safe.
