Built sometime between 1894 and 1900 on a subdivided section of historic lot 35.[1] May have been the home of Josiah Turner and later Mary Hooker.[2]

By 1975 it was demolished;[3] by 1983 it was a parking lot. The Hickory House restaurant was built on the southern section of the property in 1947. In 1994 a new Hillsborough Police station was built on the property.
