Inscription.  
To make the wood siding look like stone, a popular treatment was to cut vertical grooves into the boards and add sand to the paint.

Though there is no record that he ever lived in this Greek Revival-style house, George Newcom, an early Dayton settler and tavern owner, owned the land on which it was built.

Greek Revival architecture was popular in America from about 1825 to 1860. Americans identified with Greece as the birthplace of democracy and with Greece's own struggle for independence in the 1820s. The style can also be seen in Dayton's Old Court House, which was completed in 1850.

Built circa 1841 on Sherman Street in East Dayton.
