The grand brick house that formerly stood at 301 Corn Street was built in the 19th century and was first occupied by the Ellis family. It later belonged to Adlophus Hailstork, a cook at a Cornell fraternity house and proprietor of the Hailstork Laundromat. It was later home to his daughter, Lyria, a teacher at Henry St. John Elementary School.
In 2005 Tompkins County Community Action took possession of the building. Shortly thereafter, the building was demolished and the current residence was erected in its place.
