Saturday, October 15, 2011, was an end to an era in our community of Crayne. The James Robert Dorroh home sold at auction.
The house, I think ,is the oldest home in the community of Crayne, except for the Cruce house on top of Crayne Hill.
James Robert, in some of his history articles about his beloved community of Crayne, told that the house was over a hundred years old in the year 2000.
The old house was heavily damaged in the tornado that hit Crayne on Jan. 3, 2000, but he saw to it the damage was repaired and it was fixed to its original beauty. As shown in the picture above.
I hope the new owners will care and respect the old home as James Robert did.
