Located at 352 East Market Street, it was built in 1910 for Harvey and Nellie Coppes. It was designed by Henry Frazier and is an Arts and Crafts architectural style. The original cost of the home was an estimated cost of $8,000-$10,000. In today's money that would be $200,000-$265,000.
The home features a full-width porch with granite stone, pressed brick, and a red, clay tile roof. On the inside are beveled and leaded glass windows, pocket doors of oak on one side and mahogany on the other, and a fireplace inglenook with built-in leather-seated benches.
Harvey was the son of Samuel and Elizabeth Coppes. He began his career as a bookkeeper at Coppes Brothers and Zook. In May of 1891, Harvey and his father Samuel purchased the Farmer and Trader Bank from the Betchels. He worked at the bank as a cashier and had become the president just weeks before his death.
