City Directories and History: When the children of Dr. and Mrs. Joseph Koger Fairey had reached the age where they needed to attend high school, the family moved from Creston to St. Matthews and moved into this home in about 1908. There three children were: Philip Washington Fairey of St. Matthews, Joseph K. Fairey of Bamberg, and a daughter who lived only a short time, Annie Florie Fairey.
