A Place in History: Levi Starr Home • Monroe
An early example of early brick house construction is a home built by Levi Starr in 1862 on Old Argyle Road and Second Street.

Starr was a wealthy farmer and land speculator. William Ludlow, youngest son of Arabut Ludlow, bought the home in 1882. He and the other Ludlows remodeled and enlarged the home in 1897 and named it "The Elms."

Mrs. Ludlow sold the home in 1947 to the Zilmer-Riley American Legion Post.

It later housed the White Haven convalescent home.
