This Queen Anne-style house was built ca. 1895 for the Vorhis family, which purchased the gristmill operation originally established by John Cantine and later operated by William Mott. In the 1890s, the lower Vorhis mill had a per-day production capacity of 50 barrels each of flour and buckwheat, and the Vorhis brothers operated a retail store on East State Street in Ithaca. The house was designed by Walter J. Keith, a Minneapolis architect whose company sold plans by mail from the 1890s through the 1930s in the nationally distributed Keith’s Magazine. The house is Keith design number 148.
