History: James R. Townsend, Confederate Veteran, lived in the Kell's tabby house with his family. When it burned in May 1894, Townsend moved the upper story of a house at Gouldsville (just North of the residence) to the present location. His son, G. Morrie Townsend, inherited the land and lived here with his family. In 1977 a 50 x 100 ft. lot was set aside for the family cemetery.
