Regarding Green-Evans-Hudgens House.
The Green-Evans house was constructed in 1858 by Townsend Port Green (1813-1886), one of the wealthiest landowners in Moore County and the adjacent Lincoln County. He became rich from investments in a lumber business, initially based in West Virginia, that operated through several southern states. Once he moved to Moore County, Green was a partner with Jacob Morton Shofner of Bedford County in a walnut lumber business.
In about 1885, the Green family sold the house and farm to Daniel S. Evans (1851-1890), a liquor retailer and saloon keeper who had lived on Poplar Street in Lynchburg.
