Built in 1902When Edgar was born on May 3, 1871, his father Thomas was a partner with Winfield Offutt in a mercantile operation at the intersection of River and Falls Road, then known as "Offutt's Crossroads." By the year 1880, when "Potomac Village" was established, the partnership had been dissolved and Thomas Perry began construction of a large brick store on the northwest corner of the crossroads. (Perry's original store remains standing.) Thomas died on November 8, 1884, before Edgar's 14th birthday. Edgar and his mother, Marion, continued operations at the store and by the turn of the century it was flourishing. Consequently, he decided to construct a home for his family which was more reflective of his property.
