DYCHES - McFadin House | Willamson COUNTY TEXAS | c. 1850

Built in 1850, this home has 27" thick walls made of native stone and backs up to a cool, perpetual creek

When one of the McFadin family sons left for the Civil War, his mother left a candle burning every night in the right upstairs window to light her sons way home. He never turned up in any war documentation and never returned home.

She reportedly kept the candle burning until her death, 18 years later.
