Marker Text In 1919, the Eagle Point Oil Company sold land which became the Louise Hardie Cleveland subdivision, a residential neighborhood north of the main commercial district of Cleveland. Hill and Sara Mcclanahan moved into this home in 1923. All three of their children were born in the front bedroom. Hill Mcclanahan operated a general store and grocery on Houston Street. In 1940 the Mcclanahans sold the house to W. H. Southward, who owned the property until 1967. The one-story, craftsman-style bungalow features a steeply pitched roof, tongue and groove siding and a prominent front porch with four unique support posts, each with a cypress trunk above a brick column.
