The Richard Huckaby House was built in 1825 and was originally located in Harnett County. Richard moved from Wake County to the area along what was the Moore/ Cumberland County line in 1791.

We know that this house would have been his second home because there are no provisions for sleeping quarters and he and his wife raised 10 to 12 children. When Mr. Patterson found this house they also found some pottery and glass at a site not to far away which is most likely where there first house was.

Richard Huckaby was very active in politics during his life and he served for a total of 10 years, from 1810-1820, in the House of Commons and the House of Representatives as the Representative from Cumberland County. An obituary in the Fayetteville Observer tells us that Senator Richard Huckaby died in August of 1833 and a small cemetery in the field behind the cabin verified the article. On one of the gravestones RH 1833 was carved in.
