City Directories and History: James W. McFarland built the Queen Anne influenced gable ell cottage on Devinney Road in 1897. In the early 1930s, James Herman McFarland, oldest son of James W., began a dairy farm of the property and ran a milk delivery route.
The home features both weatherboard and beaded weatherboard in the exterior walls. Cornice brackets, shingling in the gable end, a shield type motif in the gable vent, boxed cornice returns, corner-board, and functional shutters are some of the decorative elements displayed in this house.
