J. H. Slaton House - Then and Now

History of J. H. Slaton House:

This frame house was bought around 1926 by Joseph Henry Slaton, a partner with his father-in-law, J. D. Elder, in the Elder Drug Company. The J. D. Elder House and their drug store site are both registered as Kentucky Historic Structures. The Slaton House is adjacent to the historic Hicks House site of today’s Parker Warner Museum.
Around 1944 Mr. Slaton sold the house to then Providence Policeman John Sigler. John Sigler, and subsequently his widow, lived in the house for many years - thus its frequent reference today as the Sigler House. The house was later owned by the Providence Board of Education.

John Thomas Slaton and wife Effie Henry, one of the eleven children of
Civil War Veteran Joseph Dixon Henry, are shown in front of the home
of their son Joseph Henry Slaton.

When I was born there it was designated 428 1/2 South Broadway.
