William P. Torrans (1818-1881) built this Greek revival structure on Lafayette Street in the 1860s. It was purchased in 1877 by druggist E. W. Taylor (b. 1838), a former mayor of Jefferson, and Anna Matilda Clopton (1838-1916), wife of Dr. Albert G. Clopton (1838-1916), who had his office here. After 1882 the residence was moved to this site by Soloman A. Spellings (1841-1903), a Confederate veteran who operated a livery business on Polk and Henderson streets. Additions were made in 1932 and 1947 during the ownership of grocer Hosea D. Watson (1879-1957).
