Description:
This photograph depicts Hiram Capron’s stone house in its original form. Begun 1845, it took three years to complete and was finished by 1848. It later belonged to John Penman, who remodeled and expanded it significantly in 1887. As remodeled by Penman, it is now known as “Penmarvian.” A slide included in the same envelope as the original photograph contains an etching of the house under Capron, and is also included.

This photograph depicts Capron and some of his family members in front of the house’s door and in its window.

This photograph was printed on page 25 of Volume I of At the Forks of the Grand.
Notes:
Because this photograph depicts the house in complete form, it cannot have been taken before 1848.
Inscriptions:
Mr. Capron's residence
Later - Penmarvian

Reverse:
