Prather House on Second Street

Here’s an interesting item on a January 1913 fire at the Prather house on West Second Street from the January 30, 1913 Maryville Tribune. The Prather house was built originally in 1859 and was considerably expanded by James B. Prather, the first president of the Nodaway Valley Bank. The house was used by the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity in the 1960s which claimed it was haunted.
