The Potato House
The Potato House in Hanceville is owned by Betty and Olen Dover, members of the Hanceville Historical Preservation Group. Betty Dover said the house, located at 1318 Commercial Street, dates back to the early 1900s.
“Local farmers would bring their potatoes there to sell,” she said. “Several families lived in it during the Depression. The fact that it was used as a building for the community enhanced its historical value.”
