This elegant red brick Federal-style residence was built circa 1835. It was constructed for the family of George Spink (1804-1877) and Martha L. Congdon Spink (1806-1885). George Spink was a merchant who was also involved with the founding of the Grove Cemetery Association in 1847. The neighborhood of stately homes was known as McLallen Hill, for John McLallen (1773-1844), who had settled in the village in the 1790s and whose family members were involved in early village civic and commercial affairs.
