Lumber dealer, Elihu Scratch, built a residence on Division Street South in 1887. The following year, Scratch built this home on the south portion of his property and it was referred to as the “Store House.” In 1889, the home was purchased by Colin and Mary McDonald, who had been living on the McDonald family farm west of Kingsville. While living on Division Street South, Colin was a “teamster” and kept two horses for delivering wood and moving small buildings. Colin and his family moved back to the McDonald farm in 1897 when his widowed mother became ill. The house was rented out, first to George Pearse and later to John and Melissa Lampman, who bought the property in 1906. John was a ‘jockey,’ making deliveries from Elihu Scratch’s wood and coal yard. Melissa died in 1913, John in 1927 and the home was inherited by George Lampman, their only child. George lived in Kincardine and used this house as a rental property, selling it in 1938 to Delbert Quick who also used it as an income property, referring to it as the “North House.”
