This tiny gablefront wooden building was originally located at Bexar, in Marion County, Alabama, where it had been built, supposedly about 1840 but more likely circa 1873, as a medical office for Dr. A.L. Moorman. It was recorded for the Historic American Buildings Survey in in March 1936, when it was at still at its original location in Alabama [HABS: Ala-389 (1936)]. It was later moved to its present location in Jacinto, Mississippi. In December 2002 the Jacinto Foundation was awarded a Mississippi Landmark grant of $1,500 for interior restoration of this building. It is mentioned in “Buildings of Mississippi” (2020) (in the entry for the Jacinto Courthouse, NE14, p. 166). (R.C., 2021)
