  • Last sale: 1966, price not recorded on deed
  • Neighborhood: Dunleath Historic District
  • Listing: “… looking for new owners to bring back the glory days. Exterior has been covered in aluminum siding, interior plaster walls covered by wood paneling, wood floors covered by carpeting since 1960.”
    • “FP mantels and newel posts from original Dunleath Mansion.”
    • The property was bought in 1905 by Leon M. Ham and his wife, Kate, who apparently built the house as a rental. They lived on East Lee Street. Leon was secretary-treasurer of the family business, the Ham Grocery Company at 215 S. Elm Street. The first known tenant was Dr. John R. Williams, a physician, in 1908. By 1909, the house was occupied by Jesse and Walter Waynick, both carpenters, and Miss Clara and Miss Molly Waynick.
    • A somewhat odd 1912 deed shows the house being sold to “D.A. McLarty and her heirs.” County property records identify her as Mrs. Eugene McLarty; he was listed in the city directory as living at the same address. He was a druggist. Also living there were Verne McLarty, a clerk at Sykes Drug Store, and William McLarty, a student. They owned the house for 54 years, selling it in 1966.
    • The house apparently has remained in one family since then. It is being sold by the estate of Norman P. Alley, who died in June at age 85. He was a World War II veteran and a retired employee of AMP Inc., now part of Tyco.
