A View near the Turn of the Century

This photograph of the former Samuel White Roadside Inn was taken in 1897 when the building was serving as the home and offices of Liberty Ware. The well-dressed elderly man standing in the front yard may well be Liberty himself. Note that the exterior walls of the house are wood boards painted white. In 1913-1915, during a substantial renovation of the house, a layer of dark brick veneer was added to the exterior walls. Other changes included removing the house's east wing and moving the house to a new location on the lot. The building to the left of the Ware residence, which was a grocery in 1897, is long gone.
