Cecil & Shelia White

This large white barn was built by Walter Knox Moore in the 1930’s to house mules and a few cows. Walter Moore was a very successful tobacco farmer, being named in the 1930’s as Master Farmer of Person County. In 1940, he increased his herd to start a dairy business selling milk to the Coble Milk Company in Lexington, NC. With the help of his family, milking all the cows by hand, the milk was put in five and ten gallon cans to be picked up from the farm by the Coble Milk Company. Today, Walter Moore’s grandson, Cecil White, and wife, Sheila, live on the farm.
