James Pearce and John H. Standifird were the two first settlers in Taylor. The Standifird Home was built in about 1900 by the Brimhalls. It was rented out twice then Aquilla Standifird, the son of John H. Standifird, bought the home. As a young teenager he mixed the cement and carried it to the builders as they put up the thick rock walls. The original building was the front room and the dining area in the kitchen ending at the cross beam between dining area and kitchen area. The kitchen and two South bedrooms were added later by Quill. The attic, where some of the family slept, was accessed by a ladder. When the kitchen was added, stairs were built and the floor installed. Before that they walked on planks to get to the beds. The washroom and bathroom were added later - It was a work in progress throughout Quill's life.Date Original1900-1910Date Range1900s (1900-1909)TypePhysical ObjectOriginal FormatTextilesWoodContributing InstitutionTaylor/Shumway Heritage FoundationCollectionEarly Life in Taylor, ArizonaSubcollectionPioneer Daily LivingRights StatementU.S. and international copyright laws protect this digital image.
