Moran Place is located in Dresden,TN. Built by John Williamson Moran for his wife Sophia Riley Gunn. The house used a modified design of George Barber's Cottage no. 36 from his Cottage Souvenir Book No. 2. Construction began in 1895 but was put on hold when Sophia Moran became ill. She died Oct. 7 1895. A few months after her death construction resumed. This blog is about the history of the Moran family & their life at Moran Place. Money is fleeting, History is forever.

Bub Moran with his Gun
Nathan "Bub" Moran and Kitty. Dogs: unknown. :) Taken about 1923.
This is such a sweet picture and to be honest I looked at it several times before I even noticed he was holding a gun. I think my mind didn't equate such a little boy with a gun so it focused on little boy in a wagon with puppies! The woman in the hat is probably Kitty. She was the longtime housekeeper/cook for the Moran's.
