Dailey House - Hickory & 7th
The George Dailey house was built in 1861. George Daily was a prominent businessman who owned a drug store.
According to an article in the Honey Grove Signal -Citizen, August 29, 1980, "[t]here have been several changes in the house since it was built. The porch shown on the right is no longer there and the chimneys have been removed along with the lightning rods and weather vane. Also the ornamental trim has been altered and an air vent window has been added to the front gable."
Although the house is still standing in 2013, it is in very poor condition. The sidewalk which contains the impression "George A. Daily - 1861" is still in the front yard.
