Regarding Delano-Alves House.
...Deed research and other secondary sources suggest that the house was built about 1853 for Ira Delano, a druggist in Henderson. Delano purchased the property on which the house now stands in May, 1853 from James Alves, a prominent Henderson landowner and descendent of the one of the members of the Transylvania Company, the land development company that established Henderson. The eleven acres of land originally associated with the house were purchased for $250 plus a ten acre tract owned by Delano that was deeded to Alves.
