McCulley House, 1365 John Street S, (NR)

Built by David McCully, this Gothic style residence was originally located at 891 Front Street. In 1919, Judge Leonard H. McMahan and his wife Bertha (Byrd) brought the property. After his death in 1957, she continued living there until the house was severely damaged by a falling tree during the Columbus Day windstorm of 1962. David Duniway purchased the house from the McMahan family and was instrumental in relocating the residence to its present location in 1963. See photograph of the house as it was being prepared for the move.(SCAN)
