History to home
Linda Wormley’s restoration of the Wittemberg Grange into a unique, historic studio home
When it comes to unique historic homes, Jasper County Historical Society’s own Linda Wormley’s home, the Wittemberg Grange, is at the top list of candidates.
The grange, which was built nearly a century ago in 1914, used to host church events and dances. The building consisted of one main room, lined with wooden chairs, a kitchen and nearly 200 coat hooks for the many families that trudged through winter weather to reap the social benefits the grange had to offer in its heydey.
“They started building in the spring of 1914,” Wormley said. “And, if I got the numbers right, it was finished that year. Story is, it was three men a day that were building the building. If they didn’t show up, they would either have to pay $2 or $3 or find a substitute. And every subcontractor was pretty amazed at how straight, level and plum it still was. I mean, it was a sturdy building.”
