1. Yerkes House Marker
Inscription.  This was the home of the family of William Yerkes, an attorney, judge, and village president. It was built in 1873 on Cady Street, and it reflects the prosperity of the Yerkes household. It also reflects its industrial era, as its detailed trim was mass-produced in a mill and shipped to the builder. This lovely home was moved here in 1975.
