Built in 1899-1900 by local contractor John Allen Greathouse for the William H. Herblin family. This house was located in the neighborhood known as "Quality Hill", construction costs totaled $2,500. The William B. Shoe family purchased the home in 1927. Classical Revival alterations to the original Eastlake/Queen Anne house reflect changing tastes in the early 20th century and include massive ionic columns. The original brick exterior was stuccoed before 1917.
