Located in Dresden TN, Moran Place was built by J.W. Moran for his wife Sophia Riley Gunn. It's a modified design of George Barber's Cottage no. 36 from Book No. 2. Construction began in early 1895 but put on hold when Sophia became Ill and died Oct 7 1895. Construction resumed a few months later. The items presented here are from Moran Place.

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.
