The original house on this lot was built in late 1880s by Randolph Oliver. In early 1890s, Mr. Oliver moved that structure to the north side of his property and lived in it while he built the two story home you see now. The original home still stands as well. The round tower room on the second floor was known as the “birthing room”. Mr. Oliver was a popular home builder in Plains at that time. This history was shared by Craig Walters, referencing Beth Murray Walters’s (his grandmother) The History of Plains.
