Historical Information:
Whether the house known as the A. M. Brabham house was remodeled from the smaller one built by either John C. Dowling or S. T. Fairy is unknown. Angus M. Brabham, a planter and owner of the large mercantile store established in 1879 by his father, purchased the property in 1905.
