The Casey-Terry House

This house was built in 1928 for Sam H. and Willie Lee (Johnson) Casey. Mr. Casey had become the postmaster of Olney back when it was an appointment from Washington, D.C. from the political party in the majority. Both of the Casey’s were from well-known early day families with Mr. Casey being born in Jean. Mr. Casey died in the early thirties and his widow lived in the house for several years. In 1944, Mrs. Casey sold the house to Roy Childress. Mrs. Casey needed a way to make a living so she partnered with her sister, also a widow, Xera (Johnson) Drum who was running a boarding house in the 600 block
