Historic Information
B. Dedeaux built the house as two seperate cabins during the 1880's. His brother-in-law, J. Ladner, acquired the property and altered it into a dogtrot. M. Ladner (daughter of Jules) and G. Shaw (m. 1902) inherited the house. The property was involved in the timber industry and sheep rearing (1906-1958). This ended when stock laws requiring fencing were passed, and open range stock grazing ceased. In 2006 the Land Trust for the MS Coastal Plain acquired ownership of the property.
