Marker Text W. P. Cochran Homeplace Once surrounded by cultivated fields, this residence was built for William P. Cochran (1841 - 1906), whose father bought the land in 1851 and whose mother Nancy Jane Cochran donated a portion of it for Cochran Chapel Methodist Church in 1856. This frame Victorian house, erected in 1895, was occupied by Cochran, his wife Amanda (1846 - 1930), and their large family. In 1964 their granddaughter Anne A. Cochran sold the structure to the adjacent church. RTHL 1976
