70 County Road, the John Hayes house (1910)

The John Hayes house is one of the newest structures in the South Village Green district, even though it was built in 1910, with modifications in 1925. The hip roof, the generous front porch and extended eaves draw from the Arts and Crafts architectural styles of the early 20th Century.

John William Alton Hayes was involved in the hotel industry until his retirement in 1903. His relationship to the original owner of this house is uncertain.

The Hayes Hotel at Depot Square was built as a hosiery factory for the Peatfield brothers. It became a lodgking for homeless veterans, and burned in the 20th Century with loss of life.
