Marker Text Late Victorian house with art glass windows, shingled gables, ornate gingerbread trim. Large rooms have 12-foot ceilings. Built in 1898 of clear lumber, hand-picked by the owners, John H. Luck, assisted by Jeff Tanner, a highly respected Negro builder working out of lumber yard of S. K. Seymour. B. F. Isgrig bought the property in 1916; descendants, including a son, Nathan Powderly Isgrig, have since occupied and preserved it. RTHL - 1973
