Family History

In 1817, James R. Clark was on a trek out west when he made a pit stop at Caledonia to look for some temporary work. Little did he know that Caledonia was not a pit stop but an end stop. He was soon appointed Constable and Collector for the town. He built the stone tavern ten years later with native limestone. The building saw life as several different uses, including a post office, successive banks, an insurance agency, and a library,  for a century or more, before Frederick F. Keith made minimal alterations to restore it as a home.
