George and Mary Potts Home at 404 W. Prospect Avenue.
This Gable and Wing style home was built in 1880. The front porch, exhibiting Craftsman Style rafter ends and tapering columns, appears to be a later addition.
By 1897, the home was owned by George and Mary Potts. George invented a number of patented machines for pasteurizing milk. At the age of 30, he became the senior partner in the Potts and Wood Creamery. The city was shocked when, in the same year, he died after only a five day illness.
