There is an old saying that states: “If walls could talk,
the tales they would tell.” The house at 155 Idaho Avenue in Dayton is a perfect example of
this saying. But I will explain that later. Every house seems to have its own
personality which speaks to anyone interested in the family history. However, if a person
becomes a detective, a great deal of information can be found.
The land for this Idaho
Avenue home is made up of two lots, one purchased from Creed M. Fulton on Jan. 18, 1890, and the
other bought from W. T. Broyles and wife on Oct. 29, 1895. Both lots were acquired by Dr.
James Gillespie Thomison. One hundred dollars was the selling price for the lot purchased from
W. T. Broyles.
