Inscription.  

Built as the home of Daniel English, a local architect-builder who was responsible for the construction of the Jefferson and Clarion County Court Houses. After 1897 it was home to William Shields (1859-1935), a Brookville grocer active in supplying provisions to lumber camps along the North Fork Creek and the Clarion River. His former store stands to the immediate right. Shields also served as Burgess of the Borough and manager of the Brookville Dairy and Creamery Co. The second story bay window was added during the occupancy of the Shield's [sic] family. Restored in 1985 by Attorney John G. Achille.
