William Ray Perry House
In 1894, William Ray Perry built this house on the farm that was purchased by his father in 1829. The Queen Anne house displays Eastlake ornamentation. Perry's forebearers had arrived in New England in 1650. In 1825, Edmund Perry, William's great-uncle moved his immediate family from Rhode Island to the Grand Blanc area; other family members followed. The Perry's were the township's second pioneer family, and this vicinity became popularly known as the "Perry Settlement."
