Inscription. This structure originated as a one-story limestone dwelling. Built between 1869 and 1871 by Charles Denny. Mrs N.L.

A local physician, Margaret and her husband Dr. Simon J. Clark renovated the house about 1920. They added an elaborate entrance on the north side and stuccoed the entrance walls.
