Inscription.  

This structure originated as a one-story limestone dwelling. Built between 1869 and 1871 by Charles Denny. Mrs. N.L. Holliday, a widow with six children, purchased the house in 1898 and added the second floor in 1906. The residence was later occupied by her daughter Margaret (d. 1921). A local physician, Margaret and her husband Dr. Simon J. Clark renovated the house about 1920. They added an elaborate entrance on the north side and stuccoed the entrance walls.
