David Mackey, a local carpenter, built this house between 1868 and 1871. He lived in this home until 1876. Mackey also ran a butcher shop and served as mayor of West Branch in 1879 and postmaster in 1885.Built several years before his birth, this would have been a familiar landmark to young Herbert Hoover. Adaptive restoration of the Mackey House was completed in 1985.
