According to Charlotte Gibson, the house is currently being updated and will be available for lease by September.

The house has three large bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, laundry, spacious living room, dining room and a den with a fireplace.

The Enzors remodeled Mr. Enzor's home when they married and the result was a house twice the size of the original.

Helen Cox Enzor taught in the city school system for many years and was well known throughout Troy and Pike County,

Gibson said.

In gratitude for the gift of this fine home, the Pioneer

Museum of Alabama will dedicate the one-room schoolhouse to Mrs. Enzor and her sister Lucie Cox Chapman, who also

taught school and was the wife of Corley Chapman, Sr., Gibson said.

The one-room schoolhouse came from Montgomery County and is an excellent example of schools found throughout the state in the latter part of the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century.

The schoolhouse is now used for music instruction, which was an interest of the two Cox sisters. It is also used for the hands-on-history program, which recreates life of the early settlers of the Alabama Territory.
