Lathem Barrett Moore House

This home was built sometime between 1880 and 1890. The original construction had five rooms and twelve foot ceilings. The home was owned by Mr. George Lathem from 1907 through 1917, and was sold to Mr. and Mrs. Carl Barrett, who owned it for nearly 20 years. Afterward, Mr. John Moore owned and rented it to Mr. C.J. Cheves, the Gainesville School Superintendent, until 1943. Mr. Robert Lee Moore purchased the home in 1943. Moore did a massive remodel and restoration on the home three years later and sold it W.F. Hennens in 1960.
