NATHANIEL HAGGARD HOME: The original room built by Nathaniel Haggard, Sr., in 1786, of hewn cherry and ash logs was still standing in good repair in 1949 when pictures were taken by William A. Fitzgerald. More rooms had been added. This home is on the farm of W. E. Heflin (1949) on Howard Creek three miles south of Winchester on the east side of the Boonesboro Pike and 3/4 mile from the pike. The Nathaniel Haggard Cemetery was located 200 yards northwest of the house, field stone markers were gone so only a pasture was left.
BARTLETT HAGGARD HOME (1764-1846) is 1/4 mile north of his father's place. In 1949 it was owned by Wheeler Haggard, son of James. The Bartlett Haggard Cemetery is to the right of the house and within sight, enclosed by a stone wall.
