Wallace House

Built around 1920, this was the home of Charles P. Wallace. Wallace and his second wife lived in the home and raised their three daughters. Mrs. Wallace was the sister of Mr. E.R. Barrett. Mr. Wallace married a third time to Mrs. Martin, and after her death, the home became the property of their two daughters, Mrs. Lucile Nuckolls and Mrs. Evelyn Hughes. In the mid-1970s, the home functioned as three separate apartments. It has since been converted into law offices.
