Crouch House List - Commercial

While M. G. Crouch Lumber Company concentrated on fine home construction in the greater Hickory area, they also completed many commercial projects for stores, factories and schools.

Listings in the Crouch House List are based on a variety of sources, primarily company files containing contracts, photographs, job books, floor plans, and related documents. Other sources include Hickory Landmarks publications, newspaper articles, and personal interviews.

If you would like more information on a particular home, please contact Hickory Landmarks Society who holds the Crouch Lumber Company archives. The Crouch House List is based on the best information available, but the company records are incomplete, so additions and corrections are welcome.
