—Town of Parker Landmark —In 1910, newlyweds James and Victoria Newcomb bought this property from George Parker for $150. In January of 1911 they built their first home, which is the central portion of the present house. Reputedly, it was built quickly, "up and all closed in" in just 21 days. James had moved to Parker in March of 1910 and had opened a barber shop in the Rhode Island Hotel. James was also a fine violinist and formed Newcomb's Orchestra, later called the Parker Band. In the fall of 1911, James built his own shop across the street from the Rhode Island Hotel and for many years the couple moved back and forth between the house and the rear quarters of the shop, renting out the house at least five times between 1913 and 1926.
