This old home was built by John & Clarice Nail Castleberry circa 1919. They moved to Eclectic sometime before 1930 and were soon on their way to becoming one of Eclectic's several if not the first, of its citizens who became millionaires. It then became the home of James Elmer and Georgia Castleberry for several years. One of their sons, James Elmer Castleberry, Jr., assumed ownership of the home in the 1960's and lived there until his death in 1999.
