The “Evans” part of Evans Coghill harkens back to Lula Evans Folk from Pendleton, SC, the grandmother of Evans Coghill co-founder, Chris Folk, Jr. The “Coghill” portion is taken from my grandmother, Margaret Coghill Borkey of Bowling Green, VA.
These two ladies had a profound effect on us. Chris and I remember fondly the time we spent with our grandmothers growing up, and the lessons we learned from their unquestionable wisdom. We recognized that many of the same values our grandmothers held true were the same ones we were using to build this company. So we decided that there was no better way to be reminded of our values on a daily basis than to incorporate our grandmothers into our company’s name.
“Among other things, our grandmothers taught us the importance of honoring family, and giving back to the community. Alan and I both share those beliefs,” notes Chris Folk. “For us, Evans Coghill Homes is a story about doing what’s right.”
Today, we stand proud, honoring our families’ heritage by naming our company after two very influential ladies in our lives – our grandmothers.
