Regarding Dr. David & Elizabeth Moore House. Excerpt from East Grove Street Architectural/Historical Survey by Greg Koos (1985):
… Dr. D. O. Moore was born in Harrison County, Ohio, in 1838. He began the study of medicine in 1858, had a period of high adventure and began his medical practice in 1863. His biographer in 1879 provides an insight to, not only Dr. Moore but also the rationale behind his fine house: “During 1859-1860 he was engaged in freighting goods and supplies from Omaha, Nebraska to Denver, Colorado; while employed in this way he learned much about Western life and travel on the plains. The hardness and sickness endured by him while there stimulated him to provide himself with a good home, which he now enjoys.”
