My Notes
Edit
According to my leisure reading from, Lanterns on the Levee, The House of Percy, and Rising Tide, and talking with local people in this area, this is what I know regarding the shotgun houses on Floyd Smith Rd. previously known as Woodburn Road. They were constructed between 1890 and 1920. They were built as part of the reconstruction plan after the Civil War. There were two notable plantations in this area: Centralia and Woodburn. The Centralia Plantation headquarters was on Hwy 49 between Indianola and Inverness close to Baird-Rupert Rd. intersection. Woodburn Plantation Headquarters is located on Woodburn Rd. and belongs to the Brewer family. It is located on the East side of the Sunflower River, 2.5 miles South of the Woodburn Bridge. After the Civil War, the plantations were divided and new housing was built for the former plantation labor. The timber cut for these shotgun houses was from local forests. It was hauled to the sawmill on the Sunflower River at Woodburn Plantation. There was a second sawmill at Moorhead. White Deadening, South of my house and Dement Woods (also known as Little Africa) 1/2 mi North of my house are the most likely places the trees were cut. The trees chosen were anything that would withstand the weather--pine, oak, gum, elm, and cypress. The rough-hewn boards are better than one inch thick. The house design was called shotgun because you could stand at the front door and fire a shotgun all the way through the house, and the buckshot would come out the back door, due to the doors all being aligned either to the left or right in the structure. (*See Note 1) The roof had a pitch angle to shed rainwater and was tin. The structure was heated by a wood burning fireplace and had no indoor plumbing. The water supply was well-water. The occupants dug their own wells. The water was drawn up by a rope and bucket. Food was prepared on a wood-burning stove that was vented to the roof or the fireplace chimney. In the late 1930s and early 1940s the federal government started a program to help the economy in the Mississippi Delta. The plantation land, originally under private ownership, was confiscated by the federal government due to back taxes and by other nefarious measures. It was further divided into small parcels of land laid out in a German square. The three room shotgun houses were remodeled into family homes, with usually 6+ rooms. They were covered by asbestos siding. (This is not the harmful asbestos.) Two or three of the shotgun houses would be dragged to a new location and combined by knocking out the inner walls, adding kitchen cabinets, and combining the roof. Screened porches were added. This house had it's original fireplace constructed of molded brick. Wood burning fireplaces were used for heat. The houses had electricity but no indoor plumbing. Each owner drilled for his own water supply, and the pumps were powered by the old lever-type handle and had to be primed with additional water. Later, the pumps were powered by electricity. The walls were covered with paneling, usually pine, cut in one of the designs known as tongue and groove. Dairy barns were built for each farm, these were used to milk the cows, and the land was fenced for pastures. Each farm had another large barn for livestock and storage. The lower level stored farm equipment and a corn crib. This is where my Dad kept the King Snake. This snake made an excellent rat trap. The upper level was used to store hay. Some farms had smoke houses, chicken houses, and, of course, the outhouse. I also had a small building which I used for a playhouse. The owners raised livestock to eat and sell, milked the cows, and sold the milk to the government (standards for cleanliness and quality were high). The owners had vegetable gardens, and planted cotton and corn. The farms are small--50 to 60 acres each. On the West side of Woodburn Rd. (Floyd Smith Rd.), the land belonged to Woodburn Plantation and was still under private ownership. The shotg  MoreLess
