Inscription. Harry Pence grew up on a family farm nearby and later became a successful businessman who lived in Minneapolis. He had this Queen Anne style house built for his parents, Charles and Ruth Pence. Harry's brother Warren along with his wife Clara and daughter Ethel moved in with his parents to care for them. Warren Pence eventually became president of Springboro's first bank, Farmers Bank, located at 205 South Main. Warren's granddaughter and great-granddaughter, Lucy and Ruth Barnhart, also lived here for a time, making this a home for several generations of family at once.
