Yanceyville Mystery House

Many years ago a wooden frame house stood on West Main Street in Yanceyville. It was beside the row of buildings that included the Caswell Theatre, Richardson's Barbershop, Pemberton/Blackwell Law Office, and at one time, Watlington's Grocery Store.

It was between these buildings and the "new" Post Office (which now no longer functions as a post office). A parking lot is where this mystery house once stood. It would have been across the street from the building that once housed the Houston Gwynn medical practice and, later, the Confederate Memorial Library.

I have heard that it was the Swicegood House and was used as a funeral home.

Any information would be appreciated. A photograph would be grand!
