Adapted from the Between the Rivers District brochure:

Named “Nemophilia” from the Greek meaning “love of pastured woodlands,” this house has also been called the “Magnolia Home” because of the giant tree planted during the same year the house was constructed. The same family has owned the home since 1867.
