This duplex was built circa 1888 on land originally owned by John J. Hanson. The home was constructed for two Hanson daughters, one of whom, Alice (1858-1932), became Mrs. Charles H. Farnham. Farnham (1855-1935) was the owner of Lothrops, Farnham Clothing Company until his death. Harry L. Farnham (who took over operation of the store after his father’s death) continued to live at #116 until his 1972 death.
