After her husband had a bad stroke Annie Mae had a boarding house table offering a noon meal for people from courthouse across the street and businesses before restaurants were available. The upper floor apartment was used by family and rentef out from time to time. The house became home to Annie Mae and her widowed daughter Rebecca Wilson.
