Pipkin-Goodman-Edwards Home






Bobbie and Kathy Lynch

In the spring of 2002, my sister, Bobbie, and I were looking for a farmhouse out in the country. We were hoping to find a place like our grandparents' farm in Dunn, North Carolina, where we spent many summers as children.

We were driving through Gates County one day and saw a for sale sign by the road. Even from the road, we knew it was the perfect house. The setting is quite remarkable with the house down a path, sitting up slightly on a rise at the end. Driving down the path, the woods open up to fields surrounding the house. After peering in the windows, we were certain it was a great house.

We were even more pleased to find out that the house was the Pipkin-Goodman-Edwards house. We moved into the house in April 2002. It has been a joy living in the old house. We were fortunate that Mr. Sam Dixon, the previous owner had undertaken a complete renovation of the home. He provided us with lots of information on the house and its history.

We are still quite amazed that we are living in the same home as Isaac Pipkin and are able to touch the floors and woodwork that all those generations have touched. We feel we are caretakers for the home and enjoy sharing it with visitors.
