Inscription.  
About the time young Sam Clemens played pirates by the river, this house was just a few years old. During the next 75 years the home had many owners. Then, in 1921 the Hatten family came to stay. The stories that surround this house make great tales. Red Hatten became well known as a bootlegger with easy access to the caves behind the house and the river nearby. Brian Hatten as a small boy remembers his father making whiskey in the bath tub and the police knocking at the door. But with all the tales true or not, this home will be fondly remembered as the Liola Hatten Waide House.

1921 - 2004.
