The house, originally located on FM 954 in the Warrenton area, seven and a half miles from our property. The home was once owned by Henry and Florence Plueckhahn of Carmine. Edwin and Etta Eilers rented the home in the 1940s. We bought the house from Ruth (Oetken) Roecker in 1992 (her parents had purchased the house and land where the house stood). The year we bought the house was so rainy the house mover, Vernon Yoakum was unable to move it for another year! Mr. Yoakum thought the original section of the home was built in the 1860s. The evidence of its age are the old bead board walls, long leaf pine floors, hand hewn / pegged support beans and ‘crazy glass’ windows.
