Inscription. Charles W. Post (1854-1914), famed cereal manufacturer who founded this community as a model town, occupied this residence during his frequent visits here. Employees of the Double U Company constructed the cottage in 1907 using native stone hand-quarried in the nearby caprock. The design was drawn by a member of Post's staff in Battle Creek, Michigan. After 1917, the J. L. Stewart and Jim Hundley families occupied and preserved the structure.
