Robert Dolmage (1820-1889), a general merchant on Main Street, built this red brick home for his wife and daughters. After his wife's death in 1904, the girls care was entrusted to Claude Boden, a shop assistant who had been adopted by Robert. When the last sister Florence died in 1945, she left her estate to Claude who was then free to marry his long-time fiance Cora March, a teacher at Hagar School.
