110 Penn Street. The Ball-Eddleman-McFarland House. Built in 1899. Built right after the Polllock-Capps house. This house and the one next door were built in what once was known as Quality Hill. This house is also of the Queen Ann style. As late as the 60's I can remember Penn St. and Summit Street lined with magnificent huge Homes.

Laneri House, 1904

Tuesday the 19th, This is the John B. Laneri House, I parked the truck at the side of the house and went to the front to take a Photo of the House. I saw a Historical marker on the front porch wall. Walking up the stairs out of the corner of my eye a big “No Trespassing” loomed. I thought well I will quickly snap a shot and be gone. I got caught, a guy was sitting at a desk inside, I motioned that I wanted to take a photo of the marker. He got up and came to the door and unlocked it. I was looking behind me for the quickest escape route. He opened the door and said would you like to come in for a tour? You bet I would. Went to the truck and told Neva that we were going on a tour of the house. Our tour guide Mike, gave us the very interesting tour. It is now a Law Firm of Candace Taylor. Thanks Mike, Very interesting and beautiful House.
