Mrs. Susan Culpepper Barfoot states that this substantial, two-story frame residence was built by her husband’s grandfather, George Barfoot. According to her account, her husband, George A. Barfoot (1875 – 1964), remembered hearing as a small child that his grandfather had inherited a sizable sum of money, but because he was a poor manager of money and property, it was put in the name of his son, James Jackson Barfoot, George A. Barfoot’s father.

The land was a gift from Larry D. Tomlinson, the brother of James J. Barfoot’s wife. The deed, dated May 31, 1879, indicated that the house was built about then. James Jackson Barfoot, listed in the 1908 City Directory as a policeman, and his wife resided here until their deaths. It was then inherited by their son, George A. Barfoot, one of the earliest and most active real estate and rental agents in Wilson. Barfoot was the owner of much property in Wilson, much of which was subdivided and developed during the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s. His wife, whom he married in 1910, was the daughter of prominent carriage maker Cicero Culpepper. The Culpepper House stands adjacent of this house.
