City Directories and History: Built around 1910. Bought in the 1930’s by Mr. and Mrs. Thomas W. Roof, Sr. In the 1960’s their son T. W. Roof Jr. and his family moved there. Sold in the early 2000’s to Ian Stratton who made his home there for the next ten years. Sold to Oliver Johnson in 2010, who remains the current owner in 2013.
Historically, the home was also owned by Margaret T. Alling. Contributor, John Withers wrote in Nov. 2013, “the home we knew as the Ruff home was once a home of Mrs. Alling. Then Mrs. Alling would have been the aunt of both my Grandmother and Great Aunt who were in resident at the Neil Home.”
