View Northeast on the High Road

The view of High Road in 1913 shows the many open fields that are now occupied by houses. The first photograph shows Rebecca (Whitmore) Lurvey Carroll (1844-1916) at the corner of her property at 7 High Road with the Congregational Church in the background. Several of Rebecca’s children built housesin the open fields.

In the second photograph the church steeple is just visible between the trees to the left of the telephone pole. Rebecca Carroll would have been standing at about the second tree up the road on the left. Her house, 7 High Road is the first house on the left.

The second visible house, number 11, was built by her son, Phillip Tracy Carroll, in 1932. The third visible house, number 17, was built by builder Robie Melvin Norwood Jr. for himself in 1924. Rebecca’s daughter Nellie “Nell” Rebecca (Carroll) Thornton built at 23 High Road in 1922. Another daughter, Alice (Carroll) Young built at 38 High Road in 1907.
