Assistant City Administrator James Drinkard said that officials are unsure of how far the Farmhouse settlement stretched beyond the six acres.
Triad-New Castle LLC owned the land considered for historic designation as well as two acres where Quik Trip gas station now stands, Drinkard said. Triad gave the six acres to the city in exchange for impact fees valued at $220,000, Drinkard said.
A 2019 documentary titled, “Saving Farm House” was screened at City Hall last year. Historians Connie Mashburn, Pat Miller and William S. “Billy” Bates provided research for the film.
