The Wells Farm today is a Century Farm, an honor that goes to families who have owned and farmed the same land for at least 100 years.

Wells Farm
Howard & Betty Wells

Also over 150 years old is the Wells Farm which dates to 1852 when James Gilliland established a farm of about 347 acres. During the Civil War, Gilliland operated a general store that was a hub of activity and commerce for the surrounding area. The family reports that the store carried a wide variety of merchandise including hardware, dry goods, groceries, tools and even coffins and burial clothes. Many of these items were brought up from Nashville by wagons while other items were shipped to points on the Cumberland River. James and his wife Lillie Ann Davis Gilliland had twelve children. In 1880, Lillie Ann sold eight acres for the construction of the “Oak Hill Institute” which opened in 1882, became an early public school, and is the Oak Hill Methodist Church today.

Elihu Wells, the husband of Bithiah, one of the Gilliland’s daughters, became the next owner of the farm in 1881. The couple raised seven children on the land given to them by her father. Elihu also served as the rural mail carrier and taught school at the Oak Hill Institute. Moody Wells, born during the Civil War and one of Elihu and Lillie’s [sic] eight children, became the third generation owner in 1899. Like his father, Moody was the rural mail carrier and a teacher at Oak Hill. Moody and his wife Martha Ann Pugh had four children. In 1934, Martha was deeded the property by her husband Moody before his death in 1938. She continued to live on the farm and her two sons Herman and Rupert raised cattle and hay. After Martha’s death in 1956, Herman acquired the farm. Along with his wife Mildred Maynard Wells and their four children, they raised cattle and hay. Besides managing the farm, Herman continued the family tradition by teaching school and also operating a general store in the Oak Hill community.

Herman’s son Howard Wells became the sixth generation owner in 1958. Howard and his wife Betty Little Wells make their home on the farm where they raised their two children, Bryan and Stephanie Wells Norris who now have families of their own. Howard is a rural mail carrier and served for twenty-five years on the Overton County Farm Bureau Board and the Overton County Co-op board. Betty is retired after teaching kindergarten for 25 years at Rickman Elementary School Howard and Bryan raise hay, corn, sileage, beef cattle and sell feeder calves. Education, community service, and farming are traditions of long standing in the Wells family.5
