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.
