Built about 1891 of local lava rock by James Valente, custom bootmaker & dealer in hats. His boots brought the then high cost of $10.00 & wore well for years. After his demise, his widow Kate, continued sales with aid of their son, Leo, who repaired boots. 3 sons and a daughter survived them. The family home, once next door, was one of the oldest houses in town.
