History of the Property
The house was built by the Onley's in 1938. The letter "O" is still appears on the chimneys. Mr. Onley was the school's principle and Mrs. Onley was a teacher. The building in the back was used as a wood shop; Mr. Onley was an avid wood worker. He built furniture in his spare time. The Onley's started their one business, building houses and selling building supplies. They had a good reputation for building quality homes.

The house was sold to the Gravely's who bought the adjoining parcels of land. The only change to the house by the Gravely's, was to enclose the porch on the South side. Before Evelyn Gravely's death, the square in Temperanceville was changed and some land was sold off for Route 695. After her death the house was vacant approximately 7 years, until it was purchased by the current owners.

The present owners commented, "Our thought before we purchased the house was that it was a good location for us and as for the house, it only had 2 families that ever lived there."

They added, "In 1938 this house was extremely well-built with the best materials of the day. It would be very costly to build like that today. We found that people always took notice to the house. Some referred to it as "The house on the hill"."
