Someone asked the question, what contractor built the homes in
Brownville? Although my daddy
helped to build the houses, I have never heard of a contractor being involved. I assume they were
paid by the day (not by the hour) for perhaps a dollar or so per day.
This house was built for Travis Johnson, the son-in-law of Byrd Sexton,
who only lived there two
or three years then moved to Louisville. Henry Lee lived in this house in the late 30s and early 40s.
