Joseph Lord was a significant pioneer of the community. A naturalized Englishman, he was born about 1837 and died before 1906. The house was built around 1875 in the Italianate style. It is the oldest surviving house in the Tuolumne community. Miraculously, the house escaped the Summersville fires of 1903 and 1905. Woody Carter, son of W. HO. Carter (another significant pioneer of the community) also lived in the house. In the barn across the street, he sold fresh milk to the townspeople. The Joice family lived in the home from 1944 until 1994. The house was relocated from its original site in 1994, about 200 yards east of its present location. The Lord House and barn (located 150 yards east) were restored by John and Juliana Feriani.
