Caswell County Courthouse Fire
In 1951, the Caswell County Courthouse had a fire in the attic/roof area. Above are two photographs of that event. A long-time Yanceyville resident and friend of the Caswell County Historical Association took these photographs and kindly allowed them to be shown here. That person, through the Caswell County Historical Association, does retain all rights to these images, which cannot be reproduced elsewhere without written consent.
In the photograph taken on the court house roof, the person second from the left is Roy Irvin ("Jiggs") Hodges (1918-1992). He was the son of Claude Henry Hodges (1894-1960) and Addie Linnie Poteat Hodges (1892-1970). Jiggs Hodges married Helen Powell.
