An old Farmerville home has received a facelift. The investment of the new owners is paying off.
Pat and Kay Carroll have spent the last two and a half years transforming a 1902 home in Farmerville into a successful bed and breakfast. The home once belonged to J.D. Baughman, the great uncle of Farmerville mayor stein Baughman. After trading hands the house became unlivable and overgrown with animals and weeds. Once purchased by the Carrolls, the couple went to work spending six to seven days each week fixing up the house with their own hands. Now thanks to those passing by and word of mouth, the couple says they are booked almost every weekend with weddings and guests.
"It's been so exciting. On a daily basis people say thanks for what we've done. It's been wonderful and the community has been behind us 100 percent, and it's really taken off by word of mouth," says Kay Carroll.
The house is now known as Edgewood Plantation. It is host to visitors, guests, and wedding almost every weekend. The plantation is open for tours every Tuesday afternoon by appointment.
