HISTORY OF THE HOME: Built in 1925 by Darrell Crawford “DC” & Ann Eliza Brazell. DC struck oil in 1921 and was instantly rich. DC died in 1927 of sudden illness and Eliza lived in and maintained ownership of the house until she died in 1970. Eliza left the house to her sister who sold it soon after to Morris Ledbetter. The Ledbetter’s lived in the home until he died in 1999. The home fell into a family trust and the back room was rented out as an office. After the last living kin died, the estate managers sold the home to the current owners who are just the third owners of the home.
