It was build in 1921 for Felix Cox, a young man that owned a prosperous farm in the Sheridan community.
He was also involved in the fluorspar and mining industry. He purchased a lot on the up and coming popular location on South Main Street.
When the home was built in 1911-1912. It was completed with all the newest conveniences such as hard wood floors, running water and steam heat. Mr. Cox and his family, wife Nannie and daughter Anna moved in the home in the fall of 1912.
The once beautiful 2-story home was last owned and lived in by Kim and Dannie McDowell in 2004. Since then it has set empty and has been for sale.
I hate to see it set empty, for we all know what happens when a home is not loved and cared for. This picture was made in the spring of 2009.
