Inscription
Constructed in 1846, this Greek Revival residence was erected just nineteen years after Romulus was first settled. Originally the home of pioneer Harvey W. Merrill, the house is believed to be the oldest still standing in the city. Large walnut beams, hewn with an adz (a cutting tool), support the wood frame structure. Small frieze windows with grilles decorate the front entrance. This refined farmhouse became the home of Ray V. Morris and family in 1912.
