Just visited this house and more of it has fallen. There is a school bus inside the fallen house and two vehicles parked outside. Can someone provide some history on this house?

I think it is the old Ray Peek House in Dycusburg, KY. Go to Dycusburg.com on Facebook and look at all their photos-I think it is on there too.

It did belong to Ray and Ruby Peek. It is falling more and more. Very sad such an amazing piece of history.

The Peeks live all through this country from Eddyville to Grand Rivers and areas in between. I lived on Joe Peek road most of my life and now reside near Princeton, KY. The Peek's are a good family and I enjoyed growing up with them.

That run down house was Ray & Ruby Peeks home.

My Daddy toldt me stories of Dycusburg back years ago when it was a spar mining community with a fairly large population. Spar was mined in that region for years until other regions with spar (in other parts of the country) mined it cheaper.

Many of the original residents left Dycusburg and moved north to places Detroit to make money in the auto plants, steel plants in Gary, etc.
