Marker Text This home evolved from a two-room central hall plan house built in 1841-42. The second story was completed in 1865, and the Italianate style front rooms and Eastlake style porches were added after Dr. Samuel Floyd Vaughan purchased the home in 1870. A native of Missouri and a Civil War veteran, Vaughan (1844-1916) served Harrison County as a physician and surgeon. The homestead has remained in the Vaughan family for more than 100 years.
