Regarding Audubon. Excerpt from the National Register nomination:
The one and one-half story stone section of Audubon was built by either James Stephenson, an early settler, or his son of the same name.

He served in the U.S. Army from 1939-47, seeing action during World War II in the European Theater and Africa. During his military career he earned many decorations and service ribbons, and attained the rank of Brigadier Gen. In 1947 he resigned from the army to run a farm. …
