Adonijah F. Emley bought the lot for $475 in 1883, and built this vernacular house sometime after. The house shows a Stick influence. Some original decorative features probably still remain under the modern siding. The original porch probably did not resemble the porches present today. The 1900 directory shows A. F. Emley, a painter, living at this address. In 1905, the house was sold to Mary McCarthy, and in turn to Leo McCarthy, remaining in the family until 1943. The 1910 and 1920 censuses show Joseph and Margaret McCarthy, and two daughters living here. Joseph McCarthy was a plumber.
