Dr. Julian T. Feild and his wife, Sarah M. Ferguson Feild were the first occupants of this impressive house at the corner of Oak and North streets in 1865. They lived in the house until 1873. Dr. James Stephens then lived in the house, then Dr. William B. McKnight and then A.J. Dukes. The photo is from the early 1900s after extensive alterations by McKnight. The house was demolished in the 1920s and the lumber was used to build three houses on the site.
