Pruitt Wheeler McBrayer House

This home was built by J.C. Pruitt, one of the first presidents of Citizens Bank, in 1909. Pruitt and his brother-in-law, E.R. Barrett, owned and operated Pruitt-Barrett Hardware Co. until it was destroyed by a tornado in 1936. A two car garage apartment was built into the property and it was purchased by Judge A.C. Wheeler in 1942. Despite its age, the home still showcases some of the finest mahogany and walnut work.
