HISTORY: Mac and Laverne McQuinn purchased this property from the Pechacek's in 1947 and built this house. They lived here in five years, until 1952 when the house was sold to J. S. and Lucy Curington. The Curington's lived here until their deaths and the house became the property of their son, Charles. You may recognize this as the name of the Charles Curington Elementary School on Adler Road. Mr. Curington was the principal of the school for many years after coaching the local high school teams for several years in the 1950's.

The house was sold to Kyle and Carole Gish in 1994 after the death of Mr. Curington. Becaus of a job transfer, the Gish family sold again in less than a year to Flossie Mae Rabb. Mrs. Rabb was awarded the Historical Society Plaque for Renovation in 1997.
