Jones-Peterson House, Circa 1893, Marshallville

Situated on an imposing knoll just west of Marshallville, this Neoclassical Revival landmark was built by Anson Ball Slappey for his daughter Alma and her husband, J. Leonard Jones, as the center of the 800-acre Alma Fruit Farm. The Roy Peterson family were also longtime owners, and many still refer to the property as the Peterson Farm.

Louise Frederick Hays, author of History of Macon County, also resided here for a time.

Thanks to Lori Kelley Adams for help with the identification. I made these photos about 10 years ago and for some reason had never been able to identify the house.

Gabled-Ell Farmhouse, Macon County

This photograph dates to 2009. The house was located between Marshallville and Garden Valley; I’m not sure if it’s still standing.

McKenzie-Easterlin House, 1902, Montezuma

William Lee McKenzie came to Montezuma in 1844. He and his wife, Annie Harrison McKenzie, had five children. Mr. McKenzie was involved in the timber industry and hand-selected the boards for this house, which he built in 1902. Upon his death in 1937, the house was purchased (1939) by his daughter, Leah McKenzie. Miss McKenzie married Jasper Bennett Easterlin, Jr., and the family has remained in the home for over a century.
