Crouch House List – Remodels

Crouch House List – Remodels

In addition to building new homes, M. G. Crouch Lumber Company remodeled many others to fit changing family needs. The projects ranged from rebuilding a single room to major additions which completely transformed a home. Many alter projects featured kitchens designed by Bobbie Landis.

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.
