One of the busiest places on the Tchefuncte River was Houltonville, across from Madisonville and a little upstream. Houltonville was a community created when the Houltons, Charles and William, from Duluth, Minnesota bought Jay’s Sawmill and the Otis house from W.T. Jay. Houtonville had a general store, post office, schoolhouse, and 3 churches – including Penn’s Chapel.
