According to a publication by the Lincoln County Historical Society, it was at one point owned by the City. Brookhaven sold it to the American Legion where it became a place for dances, club meetings and a place for teenagers to hangout. 

It has been owned by several other people over the years and has served as apartments, an antique store and a tea room. In 1910, owner Amanda C. Seavey conducted extensive remodeling on the home.
