May House Smokehouse
Found in Tress May Francis`s May Family Album, this photo shows the smokehouse that used to stand immediately south of the one-story section of the house. The man on the far right is Beverly Clark May. The man next to Beverly is Frank Morgan. The woman standing in front of the house is Tress May Francis, daughter of Beverly May. Frank Morgan was evidently renting the May House when the photo was taken. During the 1920s several tenants rented the May Farm and lived in the house. Bill and Junior May, the last owners of the house, say that during the 1920s, one of these tenants ripped up the flooring in the attic and burned it for firewood. He also burned a spinning wheel and several other priceless family heirlooms.
