Williams Home Place


Three-tenths of a mile north at 132 Church Lane, Hugh G. Williams and Carrie Moore Williams, descendants of Hugh G. Moore, a founder of Mooresburg, resided here in the late 1800s. The Williams owned the Mooresburg Springs Hotel, a well-known mineral spring resort. Guests from many states visited every summer to drink the mineral water, eat home-style cooking, and enjoy dancing and playing horseshoes. The Home Place is located on Hugh Moore's original land holdings.
