Community House – Teoc MS

Description

The rustic style log cabin with stone chimney was conjectured to have been built by the federal Works Progress Administration (WPA) circa 1935, in the Teoc Community northwest of North Carrollton. WPA and other New Deal agencies built similar community houses in Mississippi in 1935. It was abandoned and collapsing in 1997, and in 2009, only the chimney remained.
