He lived in the home from 1908 to 1910 when it was located near the Folsom Mill Creek and Tabernacle communities. The Folsom family continued to own the home until local officials in Elba received it and relocated it to its current Putnam Street site in 2002 – next to the old Coffee County Jail. The home serves as a historic landmark in Elba to one of its most famous citizens. http://www.elbaalabama.net/
