This was the home of Warren S. Randall (1849-1922). He married Annie Marks (1860-1948) in 1880 and the couple had two sons, Frank and Merle, but Franks died before age two. Warren Randal was postmaster for a time, then became part owner of the Bluff City Grocer Company. After he died in 1922, the house changed hands.
From what I can gather from old newspaper ads, in 1924, this home was owned by Mrs. J.W. Carlyle. She rented out furnished rooms in the house, and at some point turned it into a boarding house for pregnant ladies called the Modern Maternity Home. By 1926, however, she catered more to male lodgers. In 1926, a boarder named John Huff lost his black and tan, white crested, bob-tailed rat terrier from the home and offered a reward for its return.
