Former James M. Gooden Home

This bungalow-style house was built about 1925 by James M. Gooden. Mr. Gooden came to Perry in 1919 and served as superintendent of Perry schools for more than 25 years. He introduced the game of basketball to Perry Schools the first year he was here and later built a gym in 1927 at a cost of $6,500. His teams won seven district championships from 1927–1933.
