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.
