The A. L. Riddle House
On the Old Natchez Trace
Tishimongo County, MS
This hand-hewn log house was built before the Civil War and served as a schoolhouse for a number of years.  Originally, the house, also, had a porch, a sleeping room and a chimney.  At the time the pictures were taken, it had been in the possession of the A. L. Riddle family since 1919.  The Riddles were one of the pioneer families of Tishimongo County.
