Another house, the Lewis House, located at 108 East Simpson Street, was originally constructed at the Gladstone Coal Mine, north of Lafayette. During the coal strike of 1910 the house was moved by the original owner, Oscar Padfield, to its current location on East Simpson Street. In 1913 William Lewis purchased the house and the Lewis family retained ownership until 1976, when the Lafayette Historical Society acquired it and renovated it for use as the Lafayette Miners' Museum.
