A small home and law office was built on this lot in 1840 by Eli Warren who lived here until 1849. The home was then sold several times before being purchased and enlarged by Dr. Minor W. Havis in 1857. It was again sold several times after Dr. Havis’ death, but finally purchased by John Powers Cooper in 1902. Extensive remodeling occurred in 1905 by the Cooper family when a second story was added changing the style to Neoclassical Revival. Members of the Cooper family lived in this home for 100 years before it was purchased by JMA in 2003 and again extensively remodeled.
