The two-and-one-half-story Stick-Style mansion was constructed in 1883 for Horace French, a freight agent for Northern Central Railroad, and his wife, Ernestine (Redfield). After his passing, French’s widow remained in residence until 1906 when it was sold to Mr. Martin Doyle Marks and his wife, Elizabeth (Weale). Marks was Vice President of D.S. Andrus & Co., a piano sales and manufacturing company with a store located at our property at 114 Baldwin Street. Marks was known for his take-charge personality, truthful selling style, and community involvement through the Elmira Rotary Club, Elmira Business Men’s Association, Elmira Humane Society, and many other organizations. It was during Marks' ownership of the property that the prestigious architectural firm of Pierce & Bickford renovated the house. Sometime during the mid-twentieth century, the house was converted into a three unit apartment house, and in the 2000's was carefully restored by then owner, Elmira City Council Member Brent Stermer.
