In about 1867 David Macy and his wife built a house at 558 N. Delaware Street for their only daughter Caroline and her husband Volney T. Malott, who had lived with the Macys since their marriage in 1862. But after a year the older couple missed her so much that the mere one-block walk between houses seemed too far. So they moved into their daughter’s corner home and built her family another nearly identical house next door. The homes remained in the family for over sixty years. Today the brick dwellings are long gone and the site serves as parking for the 1976 Sherman-Minton Federal Building.
