Inscription.  

H.C. Schroder bought [this] property at the end of 1899 and by 1900-1901 he had constructed a flour mill and a retail store on the property; it is likely that he built this house at the same time. The Beach family owned this house from June 1925 until September 1956. In the early 1930s, owner Bert Beach became acquainted with a mason named Frank Morris, who Bert then hired to add cobblestone to the front porch; this enhancement remains intact.
