Marker Text:
This home was built in 1898 by Frank Hart and Milton Campbell for William Patrick Morrison. The home stands crooked to the street due to the 1900 hurricane which blew it off its foundation blocks. In 1920 W. E. Freeman bought this home and made additions to the structure. Joyce Morrison Cardiff, granddaughter of the original owner, bought this home in November of 1980 and still owns it. (1986)
