George and Ann Parish
An ornate Italianate bay embellishes the south side of this vernacular house. It was among the first houses constructed on North Page Street.
George Parish (1821-1895) was born in Oxfordshire,England. He arrived in Stoughton in 1851 and farmed by nearby for nearly thirty years. He built two other houses in the area, at 110 N. Prairie St. (1885) and 135 N. Prairie (1891). George and Ann Parish had seven children.
After George’s death, the extended family of Eunicy Tipple, her daughter, Linnea Carr, and grandchildren were the next long-term residents of the house.
George Parish’s residence in the First Ward is nearing completed, as fine a residence as there is in the city.
