W. N. EYLES, farmer lives in the house of his grandfather, Hon. William Eyles, who settled on the farm in 1820. W. N. Eyles attended district school in winter, and assisted in the general work on the farm until about 16 years of age, when he attended one year in Wadsworth, and then went to Hiram College four terms, a part of the time under the instruction of Gen. James A. Garfield. After severing his connection with Hiram College, he taught several terms ; then read law two years with Aaron Pardee, of Wadsworth (an uncle by marriage); he afterward attended the Law College at Cleveland for one term, and was admitted to the bar in Cleveland in 1860. From there he went to Hillsboro, Ill., where he engaged in practicing law and teaching school for some time, and afterward engaged in farming on account of his father's health; at which business he has remained ever since. Mr. Eyles and wife are members of the Disciples' Church, and much esteemed by the people of the community in which they live.

Eyles House, 1888  flickr

Ohio native Williams N. Eyles built this home in 1888, and after his death his widow, Coralinn Eyles, ran it as a boarding house. It was constructed with a Frame Vernacular design and a veranda across the front. The home was sold in 1911 to E.B. Willcoxon, who enlarged it and modified it to have a Classical Revival design. It was later turned into the 1888 House, a bed and breakfast establishment, also known as the DeLand Country Inn.
