He and his son-in-law, Jonathan Warren, built this house using oak and black walnut from land he purchased in 1841. In 1846 Damonís son, Lowell, came to Wisconsin and added the front portion of the house. The Rogers family gave the house to the Milwaukee County Historical Society in 1941 as a museum and period home.
