Side A:
This house sits on lot No. 29 in the original 1802 plat of Lebanon. In 1805 the land was bought by William Ferguson, the town's first postmaster. Ferguson owned the Indian Chief Tavern. This inn was located one block to the west where the City Building's parking lot is today. Lot No. 29 remained Ferguson's until his death in 1831.

Side B:
(Continued from other side)
The west side of lot No. 29 was sold in 1856. Four years later, this house was built in the Gothic Revival architectural variation known as Carpenter Gothic. The cottage's steep gables with their gingerbread bargeboard typify this mid-1800s style. The alley to the west is one of four that divided Lebanon's original 100 lots.
