Ok, Im looking for the footnote to explain the asterisk. Whats with that?
It means the provenance is not unchallanged. Thewhite single story extension to the left was not part of the original and is under seperate ownership currently. Some stories say right house, wrong address and other say wrong house, right address.

Interestingly enough the principle challanger is a professor at Monmouth College and it was the administration at Monmouth College that ran Wyatt's father out of town in the 1850's and caused him to sell this house and several other properties in town to pay his fines.

It is a small house and rooms are likewise very small. It was a challange to get anything useable with a 35mm equiv. lens.

So the house on the right was his house, that sure looks small, BTW you could've at least zoomed in on the blond lady in photo #2:G
