This is the photo of 59 Rapp Road the home of Elder Louis and Francis Parson from 1933 - 1940. Frances Parson remarried Bishop William Wilborn in 1942 were they resided in the home until their death.

Elder Parson is the founding member of the Rapp Road Historical Community. Following his lead, essentially the Rapp Road families recreated their roots and southern way of life of Mississippi in Albany’s Pine Bush. Both Elder Parson and Bishop Wilborn shepherded the Wilborn Temple Church of God and Christ in the City of Albany. Fifty-nine Rapp Road serves as the cornerstone for the mission of the RRHA and establishes a visual presence for the Rapp Road Historical Community. This property establishes a site on Rapp Road that depicts and tells the unique story of the founding and early settlement of the community
