On the old McKenzie Road one mile north stands the historic home of Major Jack Hillsman, Civil War veteran, son of pioneer Reddick Hillsman from North Carolina who helped organize Carroll County in 1821. The two-story house, completed in 1869, was constructed of hand-planed lumber. Three generations of Hillsmans, all farmers, have lived in this house.
