This 3-room house was donated to Three Forks by Mrs. Emily Donnell from her family place, Lakeview Plantation, at Swiftown.  
For many years, it was the home of her family’s cook, whose name was Nellie.  Mrs. Donnell had fond memories of  spending
many happy days in her youth, playing on the porch of Nellie’s house. She took great interest in preserving the house,  and made
a special effort to have her nurse drive her out to view it in its new location shortly before she died.
