Title

Cassidy Home-724 West First Street

Subject

Dwellings-Indiana; Sawmills

Description

This building was erected sometime between 1886 and 1892 (Sanborn Maps). It may have been the office building for the Dow and Brown Sawmill (see Dow and Brown Sawmill) for a time. In 1927, when this picture was taken, Lemen describes it as the Cassidy House. The 1927 city directory states that Martin Cassidy was at that address. Part of the original building is still standing. The back portion (white in this picture) is gone and the middle part of the building is probably not the original. The front portion is now painted white. It is still a residence.
