LINK - Almost destroyed by a tornado a few years ago, Lochinvar, a Pontotoc County landmark, is once again open for a tour after being restored. Here's an excerpt of its history:

Lochinvar was built in 1836 by a Scotsman, Robert Gordon. His son, James,
took over the home after his father's passing in 1867 but lost the house in the
early 1900s. The Fontaine family bought Lochinvar but didn't move in for about
20 years. During those years, Lochinvar was used as everything from a dance hall
to a bootlegging joint, Tutor said.
