Benjamin Davis lived on this site in 1809. William Botten, an English soldier in the War of 1812 who died in 1848, resided here for many years; his son Joseph Botten, the postmaster, was living in the house in 1840. By 1887 the house was a "liquor saloon" run by Edward Doyle and Joseph Kerrigan.

This early two-story stone and stucco building was replaced with a Queen Anne style commercial/residential building c. 1895.
