Marker Text An architectural hybrid incorporating colonial revival and Queen Anne style elements, the M. S. (1872-1919) and Cora Alice (1883-1970) Perry House was erected in 1917 and 1918. A prominent community leader, Perry was the principle owner of Le Tulle Mercantile Co. The Perrys designed the home with their builder, George Schultz. The home, intended to resist turbulent coastal weather, was constructed of layered 1" x 12" boards and concrete stucco. After years as apartments, it was restored in the 70s.
