Constructed in 1861, this is one of the three houses that Livonia farmer Joshua Simmons had built for his three sons. Lawrence Simmons, for whom this house was built, lived here for twelve years. He, like the elder Simmons, was a farmer. The house was designed by local carpenter and architect Serguis P. Lyon, who was also an undertaker, a stove manufacturer and founder of the Farmington Universalist Church. The handsome Victorian style stone structure displays seven different "gingerbread" designs in the trim.
