    Historic Info: From Illinois Digital Archives (information provided by Libertyville-Mundelein Historical Society and Cook Memorial Public Library)--"Note included with photograph: "M/M Detters were visitors to Cook Hse on one of the pre-Christmas weekends when we had our "Victorian Christmas" celebration. They live @ 207 N. 1st St in a house which was built probably @ the turn of the century. Mrs. Deters asked if by chance the society could help her in finding who built the house & further were there any pictures. We found a picture. Jim Davis who operated an express or delivery service with a one horse wagon was the 1st owner. JMM 2/5/79" Lake County Recorder of Deeds Document 1873555 states that Lot 10 Block 5 in C. Frank Wright's Addition was purchased by Gary and Susan Deters in 1977. This lot is 227 1st Street, not 207 1st Street. Carrie Davis, wife of James T. Davis, bought Lot 10 Block 5 in C. Frank Wright's Addition in 1905 (Recorder of Deeds Book 145n page 626). The Lake County Assessor's office reports that the house was built in 1905. Photograph by Beswick Photo Studio, Libertyville, Ill. The Beswick Photo Studio is listed in the Libertyville section of the Waukegan city directory between 1903 and 1913."
