6. The Willa Hill House
This house across from the Methodist Church is on property sold by Leland Kittle to Nora B. Houdyshell* in 1904. The house was probably built around 1910. The property was transferred in 1919 to the Houdyshells' daughter, Willa M. Hill, and her husband James T. Hill. The house has four gables and a recessed center bay door. It has a back ell and three interior chimneys.

... I just wanted to note that on the picture of the Willa Mae Hill house, (she was my aunt) her mother's name was Nora Belle Houdyshell. It was never spelled with a "w". My dad, who died in 1969, was Andrew Mason Houdyshell, Willa's younger brother. Prior to being Houdyshell, the name was Houdyschell. Before that Houdyschelle. Willa Hill and her parents are buried in the cemetery there in Beverly.
