Yadkin County authorities officers have accomplished the acquisition of the Sara Holcomb home at 110 E. Elm St. in Yadkinville, which is on the intersection with Jackson Avenue and throughout from the courthouse.
The home was bought for $128,000 from the heirs of Sara Holcomb, who handed away in 2013 on the age of 103 and was a longtime instructor in Yadkin County.
“When she handed away, there was a whole lot of confusion of who the home went to,” stated County Supervisor Lisa Hughes.
Initially, the home was willed to a senior providers nonprofit, which now not exists, Hughes stated. Subsequent in line was a girl who had handed away, she stated.
“They’d to determine who it defaulted to,” Hughes stated. “So then it could have gone to her two sons, and considered one of them had handed away. However he had a daughter so it ended up with that granddaughter and the opposite son they usually had been the heirs to property.”
Inbuilt 1898, the 1,938 square-foot home is dilapidated and can possible be torn down.
The county owns adjoining properties which have water drainage points on the location. The county had sought to right these points by putting in a french drain years in the past, however they wanted permission from Holcomb and her heirs, who declined, Hughes stated.
The land the home sits on will possible play a task in future wants for the courthouse complicated.
“Among the issues we hear always is about how there must be extra parking or folks have stated we now have the ugliest courthouse within the state,” Hughes stated. “We wish to do some issues sooner or later — it’s not something fast, to do some issues to the entrance of constructing to make it look extra like a courthouse. I’d say in all probability inside the subsequent couple of years.”
