During my visit to Florida, I stopped by to see the folks who own Emmett’s boyhood home, on 6th Street in Chipley. They were gracious to let me walk around and take photos of the improvements.
There used to be stairs to this entrance many years ago; it was once Dr. Wilson’s home office entrance. This side of the house is being painted; shutters have been removed and will be repainted as well.
This house has four porches, by the way. One running across the front, two along the right side of the building, and one in the rear, actually a sleeping porch.
The owners of Emmett’s boyhood home in Chipley have done a great job freshening things up around the house. The Wilsons would definitely approve.
