Papini House

This home is located near the site of an 1853-1864 bakery and confectionary store owned and operated by Luther Davis. the impressive Davis home was located on the hill, some 100 feet behind the bakery. Both were dismantled after 1885. This structure was built for Davis' granddaughter, Dorcus Hooper Papini, and her husband, Joseph Papini. It is believed that materials from the original bakery building were used to construct it. the Papinis lived on the site util 1903. The residence was then used as a rental.
