HistoryEdit

The carriage house was built at the same time as the Queen Anne residence, next door, of Sycamore businessman and land speculator, Charles O. Boyton, in 1887.[1] The home and the carriage house were held as one property until the Charles O. Boynton House was sold out of the Boynton family in 1986.[3] At that time the building was converted for use as office space,[3] a function it still served in 2007.
