Built in 1908 by local architect and building contractor William Daugherty for William Wallace Townsend (1833-1915), this house is a good example of a turn-of-the-century residence. Allen H. Palmer purchased the home in 1920 and lived here until his death in 1927. The cast stone structure features paired front doors, shingled dormers, and a front porch with Eastlake influences. An outside staircase, added before 1913, was removed in the 1940s.
