Marker Text This double galleried colonial revival residence was constructed in 1913-14 for William H. Florey (1858-1956). One of the developers of Mount Pleasant's Dellwood Resort Hotel facility, he also had an interest in several area businesses, including a mercantile and a dairy. After Florey's death, his home continued to be occupied by his daughter Vivian (Florey) Fowler, a prominent local teacher for whom a Mount Pleasant Elementary School was named.
