Pearce House

72. Pearce House (now Advance Fitness & Wellness) 

135 W. Second Street 

 

William F. Pearce and his wife Hattie built this house around 1910.  The 1907 map shows a wooden house on this lot, whereas the 1912 map shows a brick house that matches the original portion of this structure. William Pearce, was co-owner of the Summerfield-Pearce Livery, which was located to the east, down Second Street a bit. 


For the last couple decades, this house has been occupied by professionals who treat the body including massage and physical therapy. A large addition in the rear of the building even houses a gym. Today, this former home is occupied by Advance Fitness & Wellness.
