This house was built for Hugh James Herron, who came to Dalton from Ohio and owned a dry goods business. It has also been identified as the Mann House.
One source suggests it originated as an I-House and took on its present Neoclassical appearance in the 1920s. The Colonial Revival doorway would have been a popular amendment at the time, as well.
