History of 721 Old Cherokee Road

Often we are asked about the history of the house and property where we are located.

Following is some of the history ~

  • 1885 – House was built
  • 1886, January 4 – First occupied by George Baylis Wingard & Lucy Cook Wingard
  • 1886, January 27 -Leola Pearle was the first of 7 children born in the home

Mr. G.B. Wingard was a farmer and named the property “Homeland Farm”.

The products of Homeland Farm included cotton, corn, potatoes, peanuts, wheat, oats, rye, barley, sugar cane, sorghum, peas, beans and other vegetables and fruits.

Animals raised on Homeland Farm were horses, goats, pigs, hogs, chickens, turkeys, cows and sheep.

G.B lived a life of service and generosity. He always sent baskets from Homeland Farm to the County Home, especially at Christmas.
