1917, Frank Stickney
  • (Photograph by Julie Nicoletta)

The Scatena house is one of the few in the valley that has not been replaced by a newer dwelling or drastically modernized. Frank Stickney, the ranch's previous owner, erected the house. Most dwellings built in the early twentieth century were plain vernacular structures. The two-story, wood-frame house, with a central hall, has narrow clapboard-sided walls and brackets lining the eaves.
