Moses Pettengill came to Peoria in 1833 and became Peoria's first hardware merchant. The 11-room house was built in what was then considered the country. Pettengill lived in the Second Empire-style Victorian mansion until his death in 1883. His family continued living there until 1892. The succession of owners went as follows: Samuel Clark, William Jack, Dr. Charles Thomas (rented), John Boyd Stone, and finally Jean Morron, who bought the house in 1953 and lived there until her death in 1966.
