Inscription.  The White Deer Land Company, a trustee for court-ordered land sales in this area, established the White Deer Demonstration Farm in the 1890s. About 1909 this frame four square structure was built to board prospective land buyers. Marvin Hughes bought the building in 1913 and it became a hotel. Subsequent owners included the Goodner family in 1929, and E. L. Colgrove in 1944. The structure has served as a boardinghouse, apartments, and a private residence.
