RAINSVILLE, Ala — Recently, the historic McCurdy House which sat at the intersection of U.S. Highways 75 and 35 in Rainsville was honored with a historic marker. The house was home to Mr. Edward Elijah McCurdy, who was instrumental in bringing two major highways through Rainsville, making it the town we know today.
The McCurdy House was placed on the Alabama Historical Register in 1978. In 1989, Bill Huber and Warren Thurman began work to move the building to their property to create a museum for the people of Rainsville and preserve the historic structure. But in January 1990, Mr. Huber passed away and in May of the same year, the house mysteriously burned to the ground.
