Thomas H. Little House
Plainfield, Indiana

The land around the home was owned by the Little family from early on, starting with Alexander Little. His son, Samuel Little, had a nice home and farm as depicted in the sketch from the 1878 Atlas of Hendricks County. When Samuel transferred the property to his son, Thomas H. Little, the original home was razed and the new lovely Queen Anne/Victorian home was built (around 1885).
