Inscription. This Sonoran-styled adobe house was built by rancher Andronico Loroņa in 1886 and it is typical of the houses built in early Florence by ranchers. The original flat roof was replaced with a pitched roof covered with tin. Loroņa lived here with his family until the death of his wife in 1935. After he and his three daughters left the area, an aunt, Mercy Chisholm, lived here with her husband until 1972. Mr. Chisholm was an electrician and it is claimed that he wired the first electric chair at Sing Sing prison. Legend says that no one ever knew his given name and even his wife called him Mister.
