The Old Grogan Homestead Wiley Bridge and Cox Road
The Old Grogan Homestead at the intersection of Wiley Bridge and Cox Roads. The home has been remodeled and updated by its new owners in 2013 but this property holds a lot of memories for the Bates family who sharecropped in the area in the early 1900s until about 1950.
