Joe Mike House, Talbot County

Though it’s owned by the Hill family, this tenant house near Junction City is best known as the home of Joe Mike. Thanks to Sherry Rigsby for the identification.

She recalls: I knew the couple that lived there years ago. They always helped my daddy kill hogs or whatever he needed done. A lot of memories. Joe Mike’s wife had a blind brother who lived with them.

A barn also survives on the property. Ken Hamil notes that it was a smokehouse and there was once a hog pen located adjacent to it.
