This early 20th century home was one of Columbia Streets many handsome houses. It was purchased by George Moore for his family in 1932 and remained in the family until circa 1965 when it was demolished to make room for commercial development. During the time the Moore family owned the home, the dwelling was remodeled with a new modern front porch added with turned pickets.
