The house was heavily damaged during the Munfordville tornado of 6 November 2005. Despite having walls 3 bricks thick, an entire room was ripped from one upstairs corner by the storm, and there was massive structural damage throughout. The house was demolished in the spring of 2006. New commercial construction on the old property is ongoing.
*Construction on the property was not commercial, but a new County Court Annex. Construction is complete.
*Mistaken yet again. There is no building on the old lot. It has been paved for use as Court Parking.

I believe Iím the only person born in the Dr. Lewis Barret house. My mom Lucy Crain gave birth to me on 16 June 1956 in the great room facing Caldwell St. I currently possess the bronze plaque from the United States Dept. of the Interior placing it on the National Register of Historic Places.
