Comprehensive History

This parcel was part of the land deeded to Joseph Larwill by President James Madison on May 18, 1813, as part of 160 acres in the southeast quarter of section four of the city. On March 25, 1881, Larwill sold the property for $3560 to George Bartol, who sold it again on July 18 of the same year to Wells A. Underwood for $4000. Underwood sold it on March 26, 1891 to W. S. Eversole for $9000. Eversole owned the home until June 10, 1899, when it was purchased by Dr. George W. and Ada B. Ryall. During the early 1900s, the William Annat family occupied the home, but it was sold once more in 1935 to A. H. Loehr and the Lightning Rod firm.[1] On September 1, 1956, an article in the Daily Record noted that the home would be demolished "in five or six weeks" by the Martin Coal and Supply Co. in order to make way for a supermarket parking lot (now owned by Buehler's).
