Preserving Pocahontas

Lee Moore House in Mill Point – circa 1945

Lee Moore and his wife, Mary Elizabeth “Lizzie” Hicks Moore, built this house on a hilltop in Mill Point in 1907. The building supplies were purchased at C. J. Richardson Hardware and the plastering was done by Mr. Boyd Bartlett. Mr. Moore was the son of Rev. James Elliott Moore and Lou Emma Harper Moore, of Edray. The house still sits near Seneca Trail and is lived in to this day. Photo Courtesy of Charlotta Riley, ID: PHP002365
